Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • This rug was designed to be used on both sides depending on the season, with the pile side for the winter, and the flat side for the summer
  • 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 incredibly soft—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on.
