Carmadi Village Dowry Rug - Vintage
Camadi Village - Dowry Rug /Turkey
Size:1.82m x 92m ( 6ft x 3ft )
Carmadi is a small village high in the Toros mountains south of the Cappadocian region of Turkey. Carpets from this area are rare to find especially in excellent condition like this one . The use of colours is unusual and the work surprisingly fine for a village rug .
A young woman would have made this for her marriage using wool from her own sheep and colours made from the vegetation close to her own area and a design that has been passed down from mother to daughter through generations .
