Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Lined with geometrically stylized Anatolian medallions
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters
  • Just like a modern-day barber's pole, this pattern features alternating slanted stripes
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Region of Origin

Dosemealti, located in southwestern Anatolia (just north of Antalya’s seaside location), is well known for rugs that depict Anatolian-style motifs, all centered around a stylized cross.

Material Details

Kork wool comes from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because both areas are slightly more protected from the elements, this wool has a higher lanolin content and a much softer handfeel—leaving behind a rich, silky luster.
