Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A prominent, oversized medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • Twin pendants flank a central medallion

  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
Region of Origin

Kars, found in the easternmost part of Turkey (near the Caucasus border), is known for its rugs woven with modified Caucasian designs. Almost always constructed with an all-wool foundation, these rugs are coarsely woven in either earth-toned natural wool colors (like cream, gray, and brown) or pastel pinks and blues.

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.
