Turkish Yagcibedir Tribal Carpet

This is a fine hand knotted rug produced by  the Yagci Bedir people of western Turkey. The Yagcibedir style is characterized by vivid geometric designs permeated by symbols drawn from the natural surroundings of the weavers. Each carpet expresses a desire, motive, or theme from the artisan’s life. This carpet features an eagle motif offset by leaves and flowers decorating  a complex border. The varied color pallet on this carpet’s  beige background provide eye-catching contrast.
