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
  • Twin pendants flank a central medallion
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • Rectangular shapes mimic castle battlements—symbolizing protection and security
  • A symmetrical overhead view of a floral rosette
Region of Origin

Ladik, located in central Anatolia, is one of the oldest carpet-making areas in all of Turkey. Rugs from this town tend to have a much tighter weave and higher knot count, and are recognized for their finely woven Persian floral designs.

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. This wool pile is woven onto a cotton foundation, another popular choice in rug design. The cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime—or ten.

How to Style This Rug

Extra-large rugs bigger than 7’ x 10’ help define larger spaces.
