DOBAG / YUNTDAG / KOZAK / KARAMAN / ÇANAKKALE CARPETS These are small towns south of Bergama in Western Turkey producing carpets with small patterns and abundant colours reminiscent of many distinctive Caucasian weavings  Besides the wonderful wool quality, and medium density knotting, Yuntdag, Kozak and Karaman carpest have a soft but contrasting palette of colours and more geometrical designs of Caucasian / Turkoman descent. The significance of the motifs originates in the nomadic lifestyle of these early tribal weaving groups.

Antique carpets originally from these groups are rarely found on todays markets and are highly collectable .

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 !
