Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
Region of Origin

Konya is the former capital of the Selcuk empire—where the earliest traditions of weaving can be traced back to. Today, the area is still a key producer of rugs in Turkey.
