Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • A star motif symbolic of productivity
  • An interplay of repeating medallions fill out the field
  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals

  • Commonly associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, latch-hook ornaments and details protect against ill-will and sources of danger like wild animals or natural catastrophes
Region of Origin

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for nomadic goat hair kilims with geometric designs hand embroidered in wool yarn.

Material Details

Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply. The foundation that the wool pile is woven onto is made of the long fibers of mountain-dwelling goats and their hardy, durable goat's hair wool.
