  • This rug is not perfectly straight. Its body curves slightly, showing the hand of the people who made it. It also indicates the process of time, as natural fibers respond to their environments differently, occasionally expanding or shrinking at different rates. We ensure that the rug meets all standards for quality and this does not detract from its overall aesthetic

Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • Triangular amulet design—believed to protect against evil spirits and bad luck
  • A minimalist, midcentury design with art deco elements
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
Region of Origin

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for its hardy and tribal goat hair based flatweave kilims embroidered in intricate geometric patterns.

Material Details

Goat hair fibers are longer and firmer than those of sheep’s wool. Typically in kilims, goat hair is woven into a durable flatweave rug, then intricate designs are carefully hand-embroidered using wool yarn.
