Dosemealti is a small Turkish village  of the Taurus Mountains and has become one of the most important Turkish rug weaving centres of the last sixty to seventy years. Dosemealti carpets are  an all wool carpet with a medium to thick knot density, high thick pile, semi nomadic style, and distinguished by a bold  layout and the elusive significance of the motifs. These include  the tree of life, scorpions and camels all which are represenatational of the nomadic lifestyles of the weavers.Rich green-blue tones are used as highlighters, while the central colours are deep, with glowing reds and russets.White, (the colour of purity) is also significantly used in these carpets .

 

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 !
