Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals
  • A hexagonal structure, also referred to as a lozenge, represents the female form and fertility
  • Repeating medallions create visual interest as medallions fill out the length of a runner with ornate details
  • Commonly associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, latch-hook ornaments and details protect against ill-will and sources of danger like wild animals or natural catastrophes
Region of Origin

Konya is the former capital of the Selcuk empire from where the earliest weaving traditions can be traced. It remains an important producer of rugs in Turkey.

Material Details

Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply.
