“HALAT” is the name of a weave coarser than a flat weave, it has a heavier feel with a rustic style . The weave was inspired by the hemp ropes done in Anatolia by hand .The two ends finish with a thinner flat weave in order to give a sharper look. The ends are hand threaded matching with the embroideries & color of the rug itself .The hand embroideries & symbols on the rug are usually the creative input of the weaver as is the tradition .
The production of the “HALAT İN REED” consists of 5-7 stages of various artisanal techniques .
They are custom made and can be ordered in different color variations.
ETHNİCLOOM’S philosophy is to regain the forgotten hand weaving traditions of Anatolia and rematch them to contemporary design and functionality, in order to keep the women’s workforce alive and traditions passed onto the next generation .
