    Curator's Notes

    Motifs
    • Features a one-of-kind and subtly distressed look from gentle wear over time
    • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
    Region of Origin

    Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral 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. This wool pile is woven 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

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