Beautiful Room Size Decorative Vintage Turkish Kars Area Rug, Origin: Turkey, Circa date: Vintage – Turkish rugs from Kars are unique in that each one of them has a unique design. They show the influence of many cultural elements in the region, including symbols that are often found in Caucasian rugs. You can also see the influence of Anatolian rugs in the bold geometric shapes. Kars is a rug center that has a unique history as a cultural crossroads.

The rug weavers adopted many motifs and designs from the different groups that inhabited and passed through the area.
These rugs have a primitive, tribal feel and earthy, neutral tones. This rug would be a perfect addition to a Boho Chic room or any room where you want to tone down the formality of the space.
