Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
  • An archetypal eight-pointed star that symbolizes balance and harmony
  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals
  • Repeating medallions create visual interest as medallions fill out the length of a runner with ornate details
Region of Origin

Anatolian rugs are defined by their tribal, geometric designs, rich in symbols reflective of life in traditional households.

Material Details

Kork wool is shorn from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because these areas are more protected from the environment, the resulting wool has a much higher lanolin content and feels softer in texture and has a greater luster and sheen.

How to Style This Rug

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