Curator's Notes
Motifs

  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • A simple, open field pops in contrast with the rug’s more complex borders
Region of Origin

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. This wool pile is woven onto a cotton foundation, another popular choice in rug design. The cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime—or ten.
