More about the provenance Sivas | Turkey

Sivas is located in East Anatolia (Turkey). The rugs from Sivas distinguish themselves mainly through their high quality wool and very thorough weaving, which makes the Sivas one of the most valuable Anatolian rugs. CIty and region have developed their own original design creations, e.g. the very accurately drawn carnation flower.

This Oriental rug has been treated with an "Antique Finish" wash. This wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) which represents an increase in the carpet's value. Carpet lovers often appreciate the "patina", the antique look which is reached by ageing, usage, and light exposure. Therefore this wash has been developed which actually accelerates this procedure and turns the colors of a rug, which often still feel and look "raw" after the carpet production, into softer and older looking colors. By this special technique a soft and silky feel is added to the Oriental carpet as well. This washing technique requires experience and skill since otherwise carpets could easily be damaged by it. In this case the washing was implemented perfectly.
