Vintage Taspinar Carpet

This beautiful yastik was made for a young turkish village girls marriage dowry. These small rugs are some of our most popular items as they can be used anywhere in the house as front door rugs , beside the bed etc . 

The Turkish village of Taspınar (Stone Spring) is considered among the important weaving centers of Cappadocia. Here in the homes, carpets are knotted, predominately in Ceyrek (small), Seccade (traditional) and Taban (large) formats. The older as well as the newer production are distinguished by the high lustrious quality of the wool, careful medium quality knotting and clear natural colours .

            Typical for Taspinar and Arisaman are carpets with very bold elongated, almost oval medllions with either a more floral or geometrical double prayer medallions. The varied inner patterns are clear and distinct often with earring or 'amulet' motifs in the corners, which reflect the weavers earlier nomadic origins

            The palette is dominated by rich natural local dyes of warm red and indigo blue tones. 

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 !
