Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A central medallion centerpiece design appropriated from 15th century Persian manuscript covers, now a mainstay of carpet weaving
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
  • Twin pendants flank a central medallion
  • Ornate quarter medallions corners
  • A wide dominant border flanked by two minor reciprocal borders
  • A hexagonal structure, also referred to as a lozenge, represents the female form and fertility
Region of Origin

Taspinar in south central Anatolia is known for high quality wool rugs featuring Anatolian motifs with elongated stepped hexagonal medallions and geometricized floral details.

Material Details

Kork wool is shorn from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because these areas are more protected from the environment, the resulting wool has a much higher lanolin content and feels softer in texture and has a greater luster and sheen.

How to Style This Rug

Large rugs from 6’ x 9’ to 7’ x 10’ make great centerpieces.
