Description & Technical information

Kula is an Anatolian city at a distance of approx. 50 km from Ghiordes. The craftsmanship in both cities is quite similar, but nevertheless not identical. Kula seems to have a more spontaneous (and may be less sophisticated) way of working.
There are many additional names for Kula rugs according to their patterns; Demirdji (or Kömürcü Kula) with its black backgrounds, Mazarlyk Kula with the cypresses and mortuary house, Cicekli Kula with very tiny flowers (some say flies) in the border.
