Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Minimalist Chinese Peking influences feature Buddhist and Taoist-derived designs—including lotus flowers, birds, trees, and a few Chinese characters
  • 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 minimalist, midcentury design with art deco elements
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
Region of Origin

Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral designs.

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 knotted onto a cotton foundation, another popular choice in rug design. The cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime—or ten.

How to Style This Rug

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
