Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • A minimalist midcentury motif with art deco elements
  • A universal design feature of rugs, floral motifs appear in a variety of stylized forms from natural, abstract, to geometric
  • A result of gentle wear over time, a cross-hatched fade pattern produces a soft, distressed effect that mutes the color palette
Region of Origin

Aksaray is a town of central Anatolia that has a vibrant rug industry. It is the home to some of the most skilled rug repair craftsmen in Turkey.

Material Details

Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply. A cotton foundation is also a popular choice, used to tie the wool knots onto. Cotton is rigid and strong, providing a firm foundation that stands the test of time.
