Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, the centerpiece design featuring an oversized medallion was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
  • Twin pendants flank a central medallion
  • A tree of life (a symbol found in several religions around the world) alludes to the Garden of Eden
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

Kork wool comes from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because both areas are slightly more protected from the elements, this wool has a higher lanolin content and a much softer handfeel—leaving behind a rich, silky luster.
