Kumkapi is a 17th Century Classic design, based on a rare silk Kumkapi rug originally made by master Zareh Penyamin in 1890, which was seen at the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts in Istanbul. The original Kumkapi design was based on an original Polonaise rug made in the 17th Century. This Kumkapi design has been modernised and brought into the 21st Century with the use of beautiful pearlescent colours and modern techniques such as oxidisation, which affects the wool beneath the overriding layer of silk, creating an extraordinary 3D effect with a unique look and antique appearance.
