Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Deeply meaningful symbols to the women weavers of Anatolia, these interconnected medallions represent pregnancy and motherhood
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • A geometric, step-like pattern often found in Anatolian designs
  • A symmetrical overhead view of a floral rosette
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. 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.
