7951 Tulu 2'9" x 12'5"
The Turkish Tulu rug evolved similarly to the South Persian gabbehs we hold so dear. Originally utilitarian bedding rolls, the human need to embellish our spaces with individuality introduced a particular whimsy unique to the Tulu. The luxurious angora fibers (from goats, not to be confused with angora rabbits!) also became useful for cloak material, as the long tresses wicked the rain down and away from the wearer, most often nomadic shepherds moving along with their livestock migrations. The modern Tulu textile echoes these nomadic origins, but new and refreshing colors have created incredible accent pieces that liven up any space needing that little bit of the nomad.
