Turkish Natural Rug

Turkish natural rug is a vintage handmade rug made of wool and cotton. Its origin comes from central Anatolia in Turkey, dating back to the 1960s. Traditionally the rugs were created for very practical functions as saddle bags for horses and camels, as warm blankets, as room dividers, and even as baby cradles.

The art of carpet weaving continued and developed throughout Turkish history. Towards the end of the 14th century, these rugs began to enter European homes, churches and castles. Travelers and merchants to the Middle East began bringing the rugs home with them.
