  • This rug is not perfectly straight. Its body curves slightly, showing the hand of the people who made it. It also indicates the process of time, as natural fibers respond to their environments differently, occasionally expanding or shrinking at different rates.
  • This rug displays slight rippling at the borders due to its handwoven nature.
  • Curator's Notes

    Motifs
    • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
    • A simple, open field pops in contrast with the rug’s more complex borders
    Region of Origin

    Usak, located just west of central Anatolia, is known for carpets marking the rise of what scholars call the Turkish carpet design revolution. This refers to the transition from angular, geometric designs to the more organic, curvilinear designs found in Persian carpets—resembling Ottoman art and architecture.

    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. In traditional tulus, the wool is blended with goat hair to create a warmer, stronger, shinier, and more voluminous pile. This unique blend of fibers is hand-knotted onto a wool foundation.
