Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Classic Persian motifs common in Oriental rugs, featuring intricate patterns and floral elements framed in a border
  • A central medallion centerpiece design appropriated from 15th century Persian manuscript covers, now a mainstay of carpet weaving
  • A universal design feature of rugs, floral motifs appear in a variety of stylized forms from natural, abstract, to geometric
  • Ornate quarter medallions corners
  • A wide dominant border flanked by two minor reciprocal borders
  • A result of gentle wear over time, a cross-hatched fade pattern produces a soft, distressed effect that mutes the color palette
Region of Origin

Anatolian rugs are defined by their tribal, geometric designs, rich in symbols reflective of life in traditional households.

Material Details

Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply. A cotton foundation is also a popular choice, used to tie the wool knots onto. Cotton is rigid and strong, providing a firm foundation that stands the test of time.
