Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Lined with a repeating set of three medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
Region of Origin

Gaziantep is a major rug collection center located in southeastern Turkey. In particular, the area is known for hand-embroidered, flatweave cicims (a specific type of kilim).

Material Details
