Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals
  • A classic design, diamond medallions create a dynamic interplay of sub-symmetries and geometric shapes
  • 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

Anatolian rugs are defined by their tribal, geometric designs, rich in symbols reflective of life in traditional households.

Material Details

Goat hair is longer in fiber length and stiffer than sheep's wool. In kilims, it is woven into a durable flatweave with intricate designs hand embroidered on top with wool yarn.
