Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Geometrically stylized birds, possibly the mythical Phoenix or peacocks, illustrate regal beauty and splendor
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals
  • A minimalist midcentury motif with art deco elements
Region of Origin

Nigde is a town in central Anatolia known for its rugs that feature hexagonal medallions in geometric Anatolian motifs, often with hooked details.

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’.
