"Boucherouite" Tulu

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A shaggy Turkish village rug from Central Anatolia, woven in the "Tulu" tradition, but with a unique design and unusual usage of cotton rag knots, more commonly seen in Moroccan Berber weavings. It is a delightfully surprising find, a "conversation piece," in addition to being incredibly soft and charming.
