Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • Lined with three geometrically stylized Anatolian medallions
  • A pattern of repeating hooks mirrors a set of breaking waves
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
Region of Origin

Dosemealti, located in southwestern Anatolia (just north of Antalya’s seaside location), is well known for rugs that depict Anatolian-style motifs, all centered around a stylized cross.

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.

How to Style This Rug

Spruce up smaller spaces with small rugs between 3’ x 5’ and 5’ x 8’.
