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
  • 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
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • Triangular amulet design—believed to protect against evil spirits and bad luck
Region of Origin

Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

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.
