Rug Ottomans - The Story Behind The Rugs + Giveaway



In parts of Turkey, it is a tradition for young girls to create a collection of items that will be useful in their future homes. Their "ceyiz", or dowry, will most often include hand woven kilim rugs.
A young girl learns the craft by working beside her mother, her sisters, and the other women of the village. As the girls grow up, they move through the village, visiting and weaving their rugs. Often times, motifs and symbols are woven into the patters as a record of the friendships and events of the young girl's childhood.
Thanks to local Turkish rug enthusiasts, antique dowry rugs are now being sold stateside. These rugs, most over 40 years old, are cleaned and laid across the Turkish countryside to dry before being shipped. Each rug is a one-of-a-kind, hand woven work of art. Using these rugs to upholster ottomans is a unique way to preserve such a special tradition and bring these beautiful accents into one's home.
