Sophisticated craftsmanship and pure beauty are the hallmarks of this very special rug. Luxurious and plush, this rug was hand-woven in the village of Manastir (West Anatolia), Turkey over 110 years ago. It is made from Karaman sheeps' wool, famous for its thick, lustrous, soft pile. It has a center mihrab niche in seafoam green and a golden border with stylized rosettes in crimson red and indigo blue. At the top of the mihrab niche is the symbol of a ram's horns, signifying strength. Typically, these rugs were used by the weaver's family for prayer in their home or at the local mosque. Well- preserved and in very good condition, this heirloom Manastir rug is a beautiful representation of antique textile folk art.
