Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Deeply meaningful symbols to the women weavers of this culture, these interconnected medallions represent pregnancy and motherhood
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Region of Origin

Milas is a major center for weaving in western Turkey—rugs from this region can be recognized by their fascinating geometric patterns.

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.

How to Style This Rug

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