Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Stripes—a simple and timeless classic
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
Region of Origin

Balikesir is a western Anatolian town known for nomadic Yoruk rugs. These tend to feature stepped hexagonal patterns and a maze-like pattern of latch-hook motifs.

Material Details

Kork wool comes from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because both areas are slightly more protected from the elements, this wool has a higher lanolin content and a much softer handfeel—leaving behind a rich, silky luster.

How to Style This Rug

Add an accent with petite rugs up to 3’ x 5’.
