Antique Turkish ?Siirt? Blanket (battaniye).
Very rare white ground Angora Mohair blanket.
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.
Hand washed and ready for use or display.
