The project, called DOBAG (an acronym for Dogal Boya Arastirma ve Gelistirme Projesi — Turkish for Natural Dye Research and Development Project), started back in 1981 and was an almost instant success. Within a few years, not only were hundreds of weavers involved in selling their naturally dyed rugs through the DOBAG cooperative, but weavers in nearby villages were learning to use natural dyes and were selling rugs in the open market.
The discovery of old dyes i still on going, and you will find some of the best examples available in the UK today at www.therealrugcompany.co.uk
