Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, yet artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • Stripes—a simple and timeless classic
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
Region of Origin

Siirt, in southeastern Turkey, is well known for lightweight, flatwoven kilims made from goat hair in shades of black, white, gray, and tan. These one-of-a-kind kilims feature a lustrous pile achieved by brushing the front-facing surface of the rug to tease up longer fibers.

Material Details

Goat hair fibers are longer and firmer than those of sheep’s wool. In a Siirt kilim, the goat hair is first flatwoven then brushed repeatedly to tease out a textured pile, imitating the furry hide of an animal pelt.

How to Style This Rug

Add an accent with petite rugs up to 3’ x 5’.
