Memories from his childhood in the Black Sea region came flooding back when Vedat Demiralp spied a remarkable rug on a friend’s floor whilst visiting Turkey twelve years ago. He was reminded of the rugs woven from goat hair, painstakingly handmade, that were so important to Turkish rural culture. Since then he has founded Coban Rugs and dedicated himself to reviving and refining the designs and reintroducing the skills. He began hiring the best weavers to make them for him, and while remaining completely loyal to the original concept he has fine-tuned their production.
Enter to win a Vedat Demiralp runner, 180cmx70cm, worth £340. Competition closes 15th February 2020.
