Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, this medallion centerpiece design was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • Scalloped edges add a touch of semi-retro and semi-feminine flavor
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
  • Architectural elements represent significant structures like monuments, churches, temples, and ruins
Region of Origin

Yahyali, a town near Cappadocia in central Anatolia, is known for rugs woven with primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) featuring Anatolian motifs. These often include a hexagonal or diamond-shaped medallion with pendants on a red field.

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.
