    Antique Turkish ?Siirt? Blanket (battaniye).

    Very rare white ground Angora Mohair blanket.

    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.

    Excellent condition.

    Hand washed and ready for use or display.
