View Our Collection of Rare Tribal Konya Rugs from Turkey
Antique Konya rugs: are famed and desired for their magnificent color, lustrous wool, and unfettered bold tribal drawing. Undoubtedly the most sought after of antique Turkish village rugs, Konyas often have stepped geometric medallions, so-called "Memling Guls," arranged as allover or central designs. But whatever the pattern, these rugs consistently display a masterful combination of assertive drawing and striking color juxtapositions. In a sense they are the Turkish counterparts to Caucasian Kazaks, and they are no less sought after by collectors, although they are generally older and far rarer.
