Region of Origin
- A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
- Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
- Repeating knots are symmetrically arranged like overlapping flower petals
- Triangular amulet design—believed to protect against evil spirits and bad luck
- Just like a modern-day barber's pole, this pattern features alternating slanted stripes
- A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
Cannakkale is the modern-day site of ancient Troy. Rugs from this region are known for their classic Turkish geometric designs, red wefts, and plush 100% wool texture.
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.
