Region of Origin
- A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
- A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
- Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
- Rectangular shapes mimic castle battlements—symbolizing protection and security
- A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.
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.
