Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Originally designed for French nobility, these floral motifs hail from the town of Aubusson in central France
  • Classic and timeless Persian motifs feature intricate patterns and floral designs, all framed by a border
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
Region of Origin

Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral designs.

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. This wool pile is woven onto a cotton foundation, another popular choice in rug design. The cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime—or ten.
