Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Lined with a repeating set of three medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • Anatolian in origin, a hands-on-hips motif represents a mother goddess figure (sometimes with a child in her womb)—symbolizing motherhood, fertility, and abundance
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
Region of Origin

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

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.
