Karapinar Rug with Flower Lattice Design

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An old village rug from Central Turkey featuring a design of stylized flowers arranged in a delicate lattice pattern. The background is natural brown wool with subtle tonal variations. This is a very good example of how an essentially symmetrical design with a repeat pattern can turn out at the hands of a skilled weaver who did not need to follow a paper chart to know her knots.
