Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters
  • Anatolian in origin, a hands-on-hips motif represents a mother goddess figure (sometimes with a child in her womb)—symbolizing motherhood, fertility, and abundance
  • Rectangular shapes mimic castle battlements—symbolizing protection and security
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
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

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