Milas rugs are woven on the southwestern Aegean region of Turkey near Bodrum. Carpet weaving has a long history in western Anatolia.
Traditional dyes include agricultural products such as apricots and walnuts. The yarn is also sometimes dyed with vegetable colors derived from the tobacco plant and Valonia oak, resulting in shades predominantly beige, brown and yellow.
Milas carpets tend to include narrow central panels with wide borders, and the designs are an elegant mix of geometric and floral patterns. The warp, weft and all the knots in Milas rugs are made from pure wool.
