Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, this medallion centerpiece design was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
  • A simple, open field pops in contrast with the rug’s more complex borders
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
Region of Origin

Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

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.

How to Style This Rug

Extra-large rugs bigger than 7’ x 10’ help define larger spaces.
