Motifs

Curator's Notes

  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • 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 classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • A symmetrical overhead view of a floral rosette
  • The sides of the rug are freeform and not perfectly straight, reflecting the handwoven nature and nomadic roots of this product. We ensure that the rug meets all standards for quality and this does not detract from its overall aesthetic
Region of Origin

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for its hardy and tribal goat hair based flatweave kilims embroidered in intricate geometric patterns.

Material Details

Goat hair fibers are longer and firmer than those of sheep’s wool. Typically in kilims, goat hair is woven into a durable flatweave rug, then intricate designs are carefully hand-embroidered using wool yarn.

How to Style This Rug

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