Mahala rugs are thoughtfully sourced by ourselves from independent and trusted rug dealers in eastern Turkey. Turkish kilims were homemade by women to be used in their own homes. And the ones with finer details were made by the bride with the combined help of her family and friends as a part of their dowry. Each kilim is hand woven using vegetable dyes and often in small panels hand stitched together. This is because the house looms would only allow a certain width to be woven at a time.

Majority of our rugs are vintage and semi antique. Being between 50-100 years old, they aren’t anything like machine made perfect modern rugs. Uneven weaving, minor stains and wears & tears are all expectable things that add to the character of the rug.
