Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
Region of Origin

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for its hardy and tribal goat hair based flatweave kilims embroidered in intricate geometric patterns.

Material Details

Goat hair fibers are longer and firmer than those of sheep’s wool. In this kilim, goat hair is woven into a durable flatweave rug, then intricate designs are carefully hand-embroidered using a mix of wool and cotton yarn.

How to Style This Rug

Large rugs from 6’ x 9’ to 7’ x 10’ make great centerpieces.
