Alaettin

One-of-a-kind vintage rug, handwoven and handknotted in Anatolia, Turkey

Dimensions: 4'11" x 9'8" (152 cm x 295 cm)

All rugs have been professionally cleaned; age-related wear and natural inconsistencies are inherent in these unique, handcrafted vintage rugs.

Please note: the back of the rug displays a small stain (see last photo) but does not show on the front; we ensure that the visible side of the rug meets all standards for quality and this does not detract from its overall aesthetic

Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • 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
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • A pattern of repeating hooks mirrors a set of breaking waves and represents protection against ill will and disaster
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.
