The Turkish town of Çorum is situated on an ancient Anatolian trade route, This town was at one time extremely famous for spinning and weaving.

            Although weaving is no longer practised in neighbouring districts, the Çorum region produces some very long narrow runners, on which some designs are similar to eastern Anatolian and Kurdish patterns such as the comb (or its mirror-image hour glass) motif. Colours are usually reds, blues, green, yellow,brown and black. Bright greens however are an easy distinquishing feature of these kilims. This region also produces some long kilims woven in two halves, which feature a compartment format made of narrow oblongs of different colours. Çorum kilims are generally  found in a larger size format but occassionally can be seen in the more typical 'seccade' format .They have a good reputation for a fine and lustrious spun wool and tight slit weave technique.

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 !
