Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
  • Repeating medallions create visual interest as medallions fill out the length of a runner with ornate details
  • A wide dominant border flanked by two minor reciprocal borders
  • Commonly associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, latch-hook ornaments and details protect against ill-will and sources of danger like wild animals or natural catastrophes
Region of Origin

Milas is the center of weaving in Western Turkey and its rugs often feature graphically arresting geometric patterns.

Material Details
