Konya Inlice

Another beautiful piece from this region is this so-called two-field or divan rug. Though usually made in two pieces on the same loom and with the same warp, the geometric structure doesn’t always perfectly fit together. After all, it was not designed as a connected piece. Instead, before being sewn together, the two pieces covered two different divans that were probably across from one another. These kinds of pieces are rarities.
