One of a Kind
Balikesir rugs – Balikesir rugs and kilims from this region are made by the descendants of the Turkoman Yoruks that settled in the outlying villages. Balikesir rugs are usually woven with latch-hook motifs and geometric patterns and are made with natural-dyed wool from the surrounding areas.
