Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • A classic design, diamond medallions create a dynamic interplay of sub-symmetries and geometric shapes
  • Commonly associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, latch-hook ornaments and details protect against ill-will and sources of danger like wild animals or natural catastrophes
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
Region of Origin

Sivas in northern Anatolia is known for kilims with rectangular medallions.
