Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • 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
  • A pattern of repeating hooks mirrors a set of breaking waves and represents protection against ill will and disaster
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
Region of Origin

Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

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.
