Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • This rug has a minimal design with a single color field, showcasing the yarn's texture and sheen
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
  • The Ephesus Collection was made in a small workshop in a small seaside village, made up of ten weavers who uphold traditional craft practices which continue to dwindle in Turkey and worldwide. Artisans handspin raw wool, vegetable dye yarn, and hand-weave rugs, with a special focus on minimizing material waste.

Region of Origin

Ephesus, home to the temple of Artemis, is an ancient Greek city located on the west coast of Anatolia and famous for its ruins.

Material Details

This piece is woven with 100% wool, with a super-tightly spun warp made up of many smaller wool fibers. Once they cut the rug from the loom, the residual warp pieces are then used as the pile knots, where these fibers become fluffy and soft.

How to Style This Rug

Spruce up smaller spaces with small rugs between 3’ x 5’ and 5’ x 8’.
