Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • 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
  • Rectangular shapes mimic castle battlements—symbolizing protection and security
Region of Origin

Kayseri, a key rug production center in central Anatolia, is known for rugs featuring finely knotted Persian or geometric motifs.

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.
