Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • 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 geometric, step-like pattern often found in Anatolian designs
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
Region of Origin

Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

Material Details

Kork wool comes from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because both areas are slightly more protected from the elements, this wool has a higher lanolin content and a much softer handfeel—leaving behind a rich, silky luster.

How to Style This Rug

Add an accent with petite rugs up to 3’ x 5’.
