This rare early 20th century hand woven and hand knotted Tulu comes from central Anatolia - circa 1940. Given the small size, just 54 inches long x 33 inches wide,
this piece was clearly woven for a child.
The word 'Tulu' means 'long haired' in Turkish, and long haired Tulu such as the one offered here, were used in village homes as sleeping beds. Thick angora wool was a good source of warmth -- providing insulation from chilly Anatolian nights and frosty alpine air.
The main design feature of this Tulu is a doorway, niche or stacked 'mirhab' as it is known -- the 'mirhab in natural white, is surrounded by a field of natural brown. Unlike the traditional long haired Anatolian Tulu of this genre, this tulu was fabricated using the 'looped pile' technique. The angora wool is soft and supple with a floppy handle.
The colors are all natural.
The selvedge is tightly woven and complete on both side. The ends are finished in a tightly woven flat-weave with hand tied wool tassels. Colors are all natural.

Dimensions: 53 inches long x 33 inches wide.
