A small nomadic carpet from Central Anatolia’s Konya region.

Central Anatolia is a crossroads, and long has been. Seljuk-era caravanserais and mosques dot the plateaus. Konya is Rumi’s final resting place, and his tomb a pilgrimage site to this day.

Nomads, too, crossed the area, going up the mountains for lush summer pastures, and returning to lower altitudes for the winter. Small carpets and kilims were made for their own use - this elegant rug could well have been a dowry piece - from their own flock’s wool. This perfect small size could be woven on a transportable loom, and now is a great go-anywhere size.

Plush pile and warm hand.
