Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • A pattern of repeating hooks mirrors a set of breaking waves and represents protection against ill will and disaster
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A symmetrical overhead view of a floral rosette
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
Region of Origin

Dosemealti, located in southwestern Anatolia (just north of Antalya’s seaside location), is well known for rugs that depict Anatolian-style motifs, all centered around a stylized cross.

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.
