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
  • Classic and timeless Persian motifs feature intricate patterns and floral designs, all framed by a border
  • Twin pendants flank a central medallion
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • Features a one-of-kind and subtly distressed look from gentle wear over time
Region of Origin

Hereke, found just east of Istanbul, is the most renowned carpet-making town in all of Turkey. Because sultans would source rugs from this area for their palaces, Hereke carpets are widely known as “palace carpets.” These rugs feature classic Persian designs with a fine-knot density, and are crafted mostly from wool and occasionally Bursa silk. In recent years, the region has suffered several earthquakes, halting the once-flourishing rug industry. Because these particular carpets are no longer in production, their value has gone way up and they’ve become highly coveted among collectors.

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

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