    Curator's Notes

    Motifs
    • 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
    • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
    • 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
    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

    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.
