Description

Originating from the village of Urgup in Central Anatolia, Turkey, this carpet was woven mid 20th Century according to traditional designs and techniques passed from generation to generation of home-based village weavers. Locally sourced sheep wool was hand-spun and then dyed with vegetable / organic dyes specific to the area. These rugs were traditionally quite bold and strongly colored and had quite thick, long pile/nap, with large central medallions on a plain base color encased by a series of border stripes featuring stylised floral or geometric motifs. The deep reds and dark blues which characterised these rugs were further accented by the browns, beige, tans and greens used in the detail. However, such strongly colored and heavily piled rugs are not as compatible with contemporary home decor as they were with life in the Village in Turkey, so the colors in this rug have been softened and faded in natural sun light and the pile reduced / shaved to produce the “ Vintage Distressed” look so in keeping with modern home decoration trends.
