Hand-Loomed Goat Hair Rug
A luxuriously soft, authentic range of rugs made by hand in Turkey. Traditionally worn by shepherds in the mountainous areas of Eastern Turkey and used as blankets and floor kilims in the tents of the nomadic people of this region, the rugs are hand-loomed using traditional techniques and without using any dyes. Folklore has it that nomads used goat hair to keep scorpions and snakes at bay and it is rumoured that rug traders even used a scorpion to test the authenticity of a rug.
