Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, this medallion centerpiece design was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A tree of life (a symbol found in several religions around the world) alludes to the Garden of Eden
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
Region of Origin

Dazkiri (which means “bare field” in Turkish) is a village in western Anatolia. Rugs from this region tend to feature one large diamond medallion with spandrels, in which the medallion and surrounding field are filled with geometric florets.

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.

How to Style This Rug

Large rugs from 6’ x 9’ to 7’ x 10’ make great centerpieces.
