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
  • 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 geometric, step-like pattern often found in Anatolian designs
  • 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

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.

How to Style This Rug

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
