Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A central medallion centerpiece design appropriated from 15th century Persian manuscript covers, now a mainstay of carpet weaving
  • A hexagonal structure, also referred to as a lozenge, represents the female form and fertility
  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals
Region of Origin

Cannakkale is the modern day site of ancient Troy. Rugs from this region are distinct in their classically derived Turkish geometric designs, red wefts, and plush 100% wool texture.

Material Details

Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply.
