Splendid Antique Turkish Konya Yatak Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Turkish Rug, Circa date: 1920 – This antique Turkish rug from Konya is a special type of rug known as a Yatak. It was created around 1920, and it is a gorgeous example of this type of rug. Its vibrant colors will make a welcome addition to any space that needs an energetic color palette.

Yatak translates to “sleeping rug” or “bed” in Turkish. These tribal antique Turkish rugs were originally meant for sitting on the floor or for sleeping. They are made using very high grade wool and as a result, they tend to have a long, shaggy wool pile that make them soft and cozy. This specific type of rug, from Konya, is difficult to find, making this one an exceptionally exquisite and quite a collectible rug.

These rugs are beautiful, but they were meant to receive daily use. They were not made exclusively for their decoration but were designed to be used daily. Many of these older tribal area rugs reflect this daily wear and their place in history as a part of the lives of the people.

This Yatak rug would make a soft place for your feet in the morning. It will add texture to a room that features a tribal design and natural elements throughout the space, like large plants and basketry. This Konya rug has a primitive feel that will set the tone for a cozy space that features plenty of texture throughout.

These antique rugs, the Yatak rugs, are becoming rare on the open market, and they are the perfect fit as we begin to spend more time in our homes. They create a warm and welcoming feel. This is a gorgeous and rare Turkish rug that will make an excellent addition to any range of styles.
