Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • Rectangular shapes mimic castle battlements—symbolizing protection and security
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
Region of Origin

Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral designs.

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

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
