Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • 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
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
Region of Origin

Ortakoy, found in central Anatolia, is known for geometric Anatolian motifs with hexagonal medallions and stepped details.

Material Details
