Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • An interplay of repeating medallions fill out the field
  • Repeating medallions create visual interest as medallions fill out the length of a runner with ornate details
  • A hexagonal structure, also referred to as a lozenge, represents the female form and fertility
  • A geometric running water motif, with repeating waves, representing water as an indispensable element in life
Region of Origin

Cannakkale is the modern day site of ancient Troy. Rugs from this region are distinct in their classically derived Turkish geometric designs, red wefts, and plush 100% wool texture.

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’.
