Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • A tree of life (a symbol found in several religions around the world) alludes to the Garden of Eden
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • An array of stripes in alternating colors—each stripe filled with stylized blossoms
Region of Origin

Yagcibedir rugs are crafted from pure wool and produced in the mountain villages of northwestern Turkey. These carpets are known for their extremely high quality, geometric motifs, and distinct red and dark blue color palettes.

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.
