Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • Boteh flames (or sprouting seeds) stand for growth and regeneration—they’re known as the “Seed of Life” in Anatolia and the inspiration for India’s traditional paisley patterns
  • Classic and timeless Persian motifs feature intricate patterns and floral designs, all framed by a border
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
  • Features a one-of-kind and subtly distressed look from gentle wear over time
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.
