Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
  • Rectangular shapes mimic castle battlements—symbolizing protection and security
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A pattern of repeating hooks mirrors a set of breaking waves and represents protection against ill will and disaster
  • Stripes—a simple and timeless classic
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Region of Origin

Kars, found in the easternmost part of Turkey (near the Caucasus border), is known for its rugs woven with modified Caucasian designs. Almost always constructed with an all-wool foundation, these rugs are coarsely woven in either earth-toned natural wool colors (like cream, gray, and brown) or pastel pinks and blues.

Material Details

Wool is the most widely used fiber in Turkish rug design. Not only is it plentiful in supply, it’s durable, long-lasting, and incredibly plush—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on.

How to Style This Rug

Large rugs from 6’ x 9’ to 7’ x 10’ make great centerpieces.
