Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
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. 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.

How to Style This Rug

Large rugs from 6’ x 9’ to 7’ x 10’ make great centerpieces.
