"Shepherd's Tulu" in Rare Pistachio Green

About

A simple old tribal rug from Central Turkey, woven in the shaggy "Tulu" tradition. Among the many varieties of Tulu rugs, plain ones like this, with no ornamentation, are thought to be simple beds for shepherds, during their time up in the mountain pastures. Some of them were even fashioned to be used as heavy coats. The present rug is a very high quality example of this type. Densely woven with chunky wool and it does feel like a firm mattress indeed. Its most unusual feature is the light pistachio green color, instead of the natural ivory tones of sheep's wool.
