Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • A symmetrical overhead view of a floral rosette
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
Region of Origin

Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral designs.

Material Details

Wool is the most widely used fiber in Turkish rug design. Not only is it plentiful in supply, it’s durable, long-lasting, and incredibly plush—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. This wool pile is woven onto a cotton foundation, another popular choice in rug design. The cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime—or ten.
