Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Lined with a repeating set of three medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction
  • 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
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Region of Origin

Malatya, found in central Anatolia, is known for its coarsely knotted rugs and geometric designs woven by Kurdish tribes.

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 knotted 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.
