Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • This repeating octagonal pattern comes from Bokhara (modern-day Uzbekistan), a historic stop along the Silk Road trade route
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters
  • Rectangular shapes mimic castle battlements—symbolizing protection and security
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.

How to Style This Rug

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