“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 .

About the designer


Ethnicloom was founded as the natural continuation of its creators lifelong passion for texture, pattern & color as well as her talent for beautifying spaces. These first manifested in Ethnicloom founder Elif Gönensay’s career with the concept store she opened in İstanbul, where she often peppered the design of rooms with an artisanal kilim or a throw native to the region, mostly imports . Over the course of her travels and encounters with traditional heritage, she noticed an increasing demand for this kind of artisan weave and thought it a shame that the product should be so distanced from its location of origin and fabrication process.

That’s why she created Ethnicloom, a brand of luxury weaves (in terms of wool, dyes, handcrafts) and accessories all hand-woven by artisans from Anatolia region of Turkey. She returns the focus to the craft with her tireless search for the perfect texture, yarns along weaving techniques and individual collaboration with the weavers. Ethnicloom tries to draw the international attention on the concept of the loom back to its local roots, while also sharing the unique craftsmanship of Anatolian women with a global community.

Ethnicloom is releasing a line of bags that embody the same style and spirit of its woven products. Created by recycling and repurposing fragments of vintage yarns, the line aims to bring the beauty of traditional weaving back into everyday use. This project is fueled by a sense of appreciation for the creativity that surrounds us and highlights the involvement of women in all steps of the process – from the artisans who weave the looms, to the designers who conceptualize the products, to Elif’s daughters assisting with PR, photography, and copy!

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
