Mohair Shop

Mohair is a silky fibre made from the hair of “Angora Goat” which derives its name from the ancient Turkish province of “Angora” (today’s Ankara) where it originally comes from. However, in the march of progress, the production of angora fell back and in mid 20th century almost dissappeared in its native land. This exhibit shows the mohair shop of Bulgurlu Family who were one of the main families of the capital.
