The mohair used in these rugs is only sourced from superior coats of angora sheep. 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. Nomad villagers used tulu rugs as floor coverings, as bedclothes, blankets, or wall hangings during cold winters. Tulu rugs mostly have "primitive" designs, and use hand-spun wool with few colors. The rugs bear strong tribal motifs that represent the wishes and dreams of the weavers. Some other motifs reflect the mysticism and regional symbolism of the area. These unique pieces offer comfort and practicality of usage as a floor covering, wall hanging, or sofa throw. They are also considered as objects of collectible textile art as well as being functional and comfortable decorative rugs.
