Antique Turkish 'Siirt' Blanket (battaniye).

Circa 1910.

These blankets are made in the town of Siirt, in Turkey. They are a local tradition, woven on simple looms using Mohair wool from the local Angora goats. After weaving the face of the blanket is brushed with a steel comb to produce a very soft long pile.

These blankets make ideal throws for covering furniture or beds, they also make ideal hangings with their bold graphic design.

A superb old example with a very interesting medallion design and side design.

Woven in four narrow strips joined together

Very thick heavy pile, the thickest I have ever seen

Excellent condition.

Hand washed and ready for use or display
