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
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
  • Just like a modern-day barber's pole, this pattern features alternating slanted stripes
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
Region of Origin

Milas is a major center for weaving in western Turkey—rugs from this region can be recognized by their fascinating geometric patterns.

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.

How to Style This Rug

Extra-large rugs bigger than 7’ x 10’ help define larger spaces.
