Place of origin
The pattern of this oriental rug is inspired by classical Persian rug patterns. This rug has been knotted in Turkey. This antique Turkish Oriental Rug is a collector's item. It is about 100 years old and, therefore, a really special piece. Antique rugs like this Turkish Oriental Rug are still very popular and are sold at top prices by renowned auction houses.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Turkish Oriental Rug. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It creates a pleasant atmosphere without dominating the style of the room.
The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a glorious contrast to the center.
This Turkish Oriental Rug is decorated with the so-called Mehrab or Mihrab motif. Mehrab refers to the Islamic prayer niche in mosques, which shows the direction of prayer qibla, i.e. the direction of Mecca. Traditionally, rugs with the Mehrab motif are used by Muslims for prayer and are therefore particularly treasured.
The background of this Turkish Oriental Rug is wine red. The border features olive green, light blue and beige.

The pile of this Turkish Oriental Rug has been hand-knotted from high-quality virgin wool. Virgin wool is obtained through the gentle shearing of sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable, natural raw material with a number of impressive properties; due to the wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally impervious to dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on living climate and muffles sound. The backing (weft and warp threads) of this Turkish Oriental Rug is made of virgin wool.
