The Sartorially Inclined Anatolians Are Here

Now at Weylandts. A collection of modern heirlooms for your floor with a sartorially inclined elegance that ups the ante.

Hand spun, knotted and dyed in cotton and wool, these carpets are desaturated and then colour washed, creating a striking symphony of old and new, with texturising reminiscent of hand made laces and linens.

An unexpected intensity here, a subtle fading there. This is what makes our vintage Anatolian carpet collection so modern.

Made by artisans who have been handed the baton by former generations of skilled carpet craftsmen.

Within the range, look for both a richness of detail, where colour and pattern provides the interest, and stark simplicity, where texture and textile patina is key.

View the making of carpets by a similar process in Jaipur, where colour washing in the sun produces vivid jewel tones and an modern vintage feel in desaturated brights.
