Carmadi Village Dowry Rug - Vintage


Camadi Village - Dowry Rug /Turkey


Size:1.82m x 92m ( 6ft x 3ft )

Condition :Excellent 

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 . 


What People Say - 


Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
