Kurdish rugs from east Anatolia
It was sunny all day in West Cork (in between the clouds) and I managed to photograph the rest of my finds from April in Turkey, except for a few rugs and kilims still being repaired. I was on the lookout for good Kurdish pieces, after finding a couple of beautiful examples of these often under-appreciated rugs last year. They come from the part of east Anatolia from Malatya and Sivas down to the Gaziantep area (the one with the orange borders). Here are four rugs and a yastik that just arrived.
