Curator's Notes

  • Features a one-of-kind and subtly distressed look from gentle wear over time
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
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

This patchwork rug is made up of many smaller hand-knotted rugs, originally woven with wool weft and warp. Rather than throw out damaged rugs, craftspeople salvaged undamaged pieces from each one, sewing them together onto a cotton backing to make a new rug of heritage quality.

How to Style This Rug

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