Region of Origin
- A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, this medallion centerpiece design was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
- A geometric, step-like pattern often found in Anatolian designs
- A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
- A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
Izmir, located on the west coast of Anatolia, serves as a key collection and distribution center for rugs woven along the coastal region.
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.
