Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Lined with geometrically stylized Anatolian medallions
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters

  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Region of Origin

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