Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • A classic design, diamond medallions create a dynamic interplay of sub-symmetries and geometric shapes
  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals
  • A simple but classic zig-zag design signifies water as an indispensable element in life
  • Triangular amulets guard against evil spirits and malintent
  • 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

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for nomadic goat hair kilims with geometric designs hand embroidered in wool yarn.

Material Details

Goat hair and wool each have properties favorable to creating a durable frame. Cotton is rigid and strong and does not warp easily over time. Goat hair, which is also a naturally durable fiber, has long, bristly strands that create texture throughout the kilim. Finally, because wool takes dye very well, all embroidery is done with vegetable-dyed wool yarn for decorative effect.
