Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Classic and timeless Persian motifs feature intricate patterns and floral designs, all framed by a border
  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • Named after the city of Herat, Afghanistan, the Herati pattern features a rose centerpiece surrounded by four leaves
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life

Material Details

Soft and textural wool secured to a durable cotton foundation, these hand-knotted rugs have a smooth, dense surface that make it a pleasure to glide across and a soft yet practical medium pile with the ideal amount of spring for toes to sink into. Thanks to their strength, beauty, and the amount of time it took to create them, hand-knotted rugs often have a long lifespan—families pass them on from each generation to the next.

How to Style This Rug

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
