Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • Rectangular shapes mimic castle battlements—symbolizing protection and security
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Region of Origin

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.

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 knotted 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.
