Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • Triangular amulet design—believed to protect against evil spirits and bad luck
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Region of Origin

Cannakkale is the modern-day site of ancient Troy. Rugs from this region are known for their classic Turkish geometric designs, red wefts, and plush 100% wool texture.

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.

How to Style This Rug

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