In Anatolia, rugs of this quality with all natural dyes and well drawn intricate designs were often made as a part of a bride's dowry and kept in a dowry chest for decades without being used on the floor and passed on to daughters and granddaughters. We were so fortunate to acquire this exceptional example of textile art in a a pristine condition.
