Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, the centerpiece design featuring an oversized medallion was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
  • Classic and timeless Persian motifs feature intricate patterns and floral designs, all framed by a border
  • Twin pendants flank a central medallion
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • A simple, open field pops in contrast with the rug’s more complex borders
Region of Origin

Ladik, located in central Anatolia, is one of the oldest carpet-making areas in all of Turkey. Rugs from this town tend to have a much tighter weave and higher knot count, and are recognized for their finely woven Persian floral designs.

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

Spruce up smaller spaces with small rugs between 3’ x 5’ and 5’ x 8’.
