The design used on this Milas rug is extremely rare and seldom seen making this a wonderful piece for those that also wish to collect Anatolian rugs 

 

The precise origin of the western Turkish town of Milas is not recorded however it is thought that the weaving tradition of this region goes back more than 3000-4000 years. This makes it probably the oldest of today's Turkish carpet-producing areas where the existence of textile weaving can be historically proved.

In terms of pile carpets, 

With its more pastel colour palette, Milas carpets can be extremely decorative in almost every home. Like all Turkish village rugs, the Milas carpets have woollen warps and wefts, usually using a fine hand spun wool, with the woollen pile usually clipped fairly fine.

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 !
