Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A prominent, oversized medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
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 knotted 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.
