Motifs

  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette

Region of Origin

Demirci is one of the most established handmade carpet production centers in all of Turkey. Rugs from this area can be distinguished by their coarse knots woven onto a cotton foundation, usually depicting a simple Persian motif.

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 knotted 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

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