Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters
  • An ombre color gradient fades from one hue to the next—a result of gentle wear over time, leaving a soft, slightly muted, and distressed effect
Region of Origin
