Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Minimalist Chinese Peking influences feature Buddhist and Taoist-derived designs—including lotus flowers, birds, trees, and a few Chinese characters
  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A minimalist, midcentury design with art deco elements
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
  • A water vessel profile represents purity and cleanliness
  • A meander pattern (also known as a Greek key design) forms a continuous border of geometric spirals or hooks—named after the River Meander in western Turkey for its several twists and turns
Region of Origin

Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral designs.

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.

How to Style This Rug

Spruce up smaller spaces with small rugs between 3’ x 5’ and 5’ x 8’.
