Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Linear motifs intersect to form a grid of geometric repeating patterns
  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals
  • 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

Anatolian rugs are defined by their tribal, geometric designs, rich in symbols reflective of life in traditional households.

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.
