Curator's Notes

The Collection

Begüm Cana Özgür’s collection for Revival highlights the rugs’ handwoven quality. These pieces were designed with the goal of contributing to the tradition of rug-making culture through a contemporary vision. Driven by the value of craftsmanship, from the preparation of the materials to the finishing details, this collection reconfigures classical weaving technique for a modern audience.

The Design

Soumak weaving is a technique in which the weft is wrapped around the warp, giving the weaver the ability to draw free-flowing designs with interesting textures and directions in the weave. In this piece, the graphic quality of soumak stitching is enhanced by simplifying it: the delicate lines appear to float on the rug.

The Material

In this piece, a wool weft is woven onto a wool foundation for heft and body. But first, the wool is abrash-dyed to add depth, texture, and variation in tone. Abrash results from subtle differences in the dye lots, and creates a covetable flow and movement in the color. Wool’s natural lanolin makes it soft and shiny, protecting it from shedding and dirt—and it decomposes quickly without risk of microfibers.

The Supplier

Our partner is the third weaving generation of his family, and heads a small weaving house known for their unparalleled skill. A perfectionist with color, he and his team take great pride in their work, which is evident in their final product.

The Designer

Begüm Cana Özgür is a product and textile designer based in Istanbul and New York. She received her master’s degree in 3D Design from Cranbook Academy of Art, and returned to Istanbul to found her studio, inspired by Turkey’s cultural richness and ancient craft practices. In her collaborations with local artisans, she strives to create a contemporary expression through traditional weaving culture.
