Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • This rug has a minimal design with a single color field, showcasing the yarn's texture and sheen
  • This piece is a tulu: a rare, traditional rug from Karapinar, whose name originates with the Turkish word Tüylü, meaning hairy. Tulu rugs were woven for warmth, and are identified by their hand-knotted lines of long, shiny pile, which reveal strips of flatwoven weft weaving. Adding a textural stripe and dynamic movement, each row of long pile accent can be brushed down to cover the kilim sections in between.
Region of Origin

Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

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 soft—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. This wool pile is woven onto a foundation built from the hardy hair fibers of mountain-dwelling goats—a strong material that's sole purpose is to hold up through years of rugged wear.

How to Style This Rug

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