Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, this medallion centerpiece design was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • Scalloped edges add a touch of semi-retro and semi-feminine flavor
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
Region of Origin

Kula, in western Turkey, is known for its tribal and geometric rug designs.

Material Details
