Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • Anatolian in origin, a hands-on-hips motif represents a mother goddess figure (sometimes with a child in her womb)—symbolizing motherhood, fertility, and abundance
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
Region of Origin

Maden is a town in central Anatolia known for rugs depicting traditional Anatolian motifs. However, rather than typical stepped details, these rugs tend to feature oversized floral designs with scalloped details instead.

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.
