Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A prominent, oversized medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A tree of life (a symbol found in several religions around the world) alludes to the Garden of Eden
  • Anatolian in origin, a hands-on-hips motif represents a mother goddess figure (sometimes with a child in her womb)—symbolizing motherhood, fertility, and abundance
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
Region of Origin

Adana is located in south central Anatolia. The town serves as a trading center for a diverse assortment of rugs from the region, and is specifically known for its multi-panel kilims.

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

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
