The Colors

History

We are working hard to continue the sheep farming activities in the region and to turn their precious wool into oriental carpets. At the same time, we continue to develop our business continuously for the survival of the weaving craft.

We use both old techniques and new methods to have the unique and incredible natural colors you see in oriental and modern carpets without using any chemicals. We cooperate with universities in this regard.

We know from past civilizations and legacies that it is possible to produce all the colors our eyes see with natural resources in nature. We have carpets that have never been dyed and that we produce from naturally colored sheep wool. No chemicals are used in dyed wool threads. We provide wonderful colors and tones in completely natural ways.
