Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Deeply meaningful symbols to the women weavers of Anatolia, these interconnected medallions represent pregnancy and motherhood
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
Region of Origin

Malatya, found in central Anatolia, is known for its coarsely knotted rugs and geometric designs woven by Kurdish tribes.
