Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
  • 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
  • Anatolian in origin, a hands-on-hips motif represents a mother goddess figure sometimes depicted with a child in her womb, symbolizing motherhood, fertility, and abundance
Region of Origin

Yesilhisar is in central Anatolia near Cappadocia, and is known for its rugs that possess a unique pink field.

Material Details

Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply. A cotton foundation is also a popular choice, used to tie the wool knots onto. Cotton is rigid and strong, providing a firm foundation that stands the test of time.
