Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, yet artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
Region of Origin

Yahyali, a town near Cappadocia in central Anatolia, is known for rugs woven with primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) featuring Anatolian motifs. These often include a hexagonal or diamond-shaped medallion with pendants on a red field.

Material Details
