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 create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • Triangular amulet design—believed to protect against evil spirits and bad luck
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • A symmetrical overhead view of a floral rosette
Region of Origin

Gaziantep is a major rug collection center located in southeastern Turkey. In particular, the area is known for hand-embroidered, flatweave cicims (a specific type of kilim).
