Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Region of Origin

Gaziantep is a major rug collection center located in southeastern Turkey. In particular, the area is known for hand-embroidered, flatweave cicims (a specific type of kilim).

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.
