  • Curator's Notes

    Motifs
    • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
    • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
    • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
    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.
