Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Deeply meaningful symbols to the women weavers of this culture, these interconnected medallions represent pregnancy and motherhood
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • Scalloped edges add a retro and feminine flourish
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Region of Origin

Maden is a town in central Anatolia known for rugs depicting traditional Anatolian motifs. However, rather than typical stepped details, these rugs tend to feature oversized floral designs with scalloped details instead.

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

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