Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, the centerpiece design featuring an oversized medallion was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
  • 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 corners of the rug are heavily ornate
Region of Origin

Avanos, found in central Anatolia, is famous for its handcrafted goods, including rugs and pottery. Rugs from this area tend to feature geometric floral motifs and scalloped-edge fields.

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’.
