Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A meander pattern (also known as a Greek key design) forms a continuous border of geometric spirals or hooks—named after the River Meander in western Turkey for its several twists and turns
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
Region of Origin

Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral designs.

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 woven 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.
