Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Scalloped edges add a touch of semi-retro and semi-feminine flavor
  • A geometric, step-like pattern often found in Anatolian designs
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • A raised pattern woven with a slightly higher pile
Region of Origin

Yahyali, a town near Cappadocia in central Anatolia, is known for rugs woven with primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) featuring Anatolian motifs. These often include a hexagonal or diamond-shaped medallion with pendants on a red field.
