Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • A pattern of repeating hooks mirrors a set of breaking waves and represents protection against ill will and disaster
  • An array of stripes in alternating colors—each stripe filled with stylized blossoms
Region of Origin

Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

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.

How to Style This Rug

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