Midcentury Anatolian Tulu Rug made of Natural Undyed Wool
A vintage hand-knotted "Tulu" (Turkish word for "long piled") rug from Konya in Central Anatolia, Turkey. 100% natural un-dyed sheep wool. These simple and somewhat primitive small rugs with lustrous wool pile were produced for daily use by nomads and villagers in Konya region of Central Anatolia until 1970s. Today these decorative rugs with minimalist designs are also considered collectible as each one is one of a kind and representing a diminishing form of textile and tribal art.
