Size : 155 X 100 cm

The term “Anatolia” has become the preferred label for traditional weavings from the region now known as `Asia Minor`. Although the label Turkish is perfectly acceptable, Anatolia (`Land of the East`, from the Greek word meaning sunrise) carries nuances of something much older than the founding of the modern Turkish state. Many nomadic and village women in Anatolia wove patterns that have features in common with the traditional rugs and Kilim of Persian tribes in the Zagros, north-western Iran, and the Caucasus, but with many inventive adaptations.
This one is strongly woven with shades of similar colours; it is common to see different colours in old rugs (Abrash) as this is sometimes a technique to make it look old. Turkish rugs are famous for their bright colour combinations whereas the Anatolian carpets have more timid colours due to the slight fading that takes place over the years.
