Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
Region of Origin

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for its hardy and tribal goat hair based flatweave kilims embroidered in intricate geometric patterns.

Material Details

Goat hair fibers are longer and firmer than those of sheep’s wool. Typically in kilims, goat hair is woven into a durable flatweave rug, then intricate designs are carefully hand-embroidered using wool yarn.
