Tulu is the English pronunciation for the Turkish word, "tüylü" meaning hairy.Woven by nomads using a technique very similar to "gabbeh" in Iran,and "Beni Ourain" rugs of Morrocco,the weaving is more coarse with mostly "primitive" designs.Tulu carpets have been traditionally woven in Karapinar which is to the east of Konya, Turkey. This region is a half-desert like plain and to the north there are barren mountains where winters are harsh and summers are hot. Villagers used tulu rugs as floor coverings, as bed clothes, as blankets or wall hangings during cold winters. ''Filikli" rugs are a special kind of tulu rug with even longer mohair piles consisting of one or several separate panels that are dyed separately and then hand-sewn together. "Filik" denotes the locks of hair on the sides of kid mohair goats. A filikli weave is made up of warp and wefts and of tufting of 20 to 25 centimeter long bundles of kid fiber attached to the warps and wefts with Gordes knots. These bold nomadic rugs are used As wall decorations, bed or sofa covers, and even as prayer rugs. Once seen as primitive these rugs have become popular collectibles and textile art. While some are real eye-catchers because of their bright and shiny colors, other examples are simply left in their natural tones or show basic geometric designs Their weaving is more coarse with mostly had "primitive" designs and used undyed hand-spun wool or few colors.Tulu carpets have been traditionally woven in Karapinar which is to the east of Konya, Turkey.
