Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
Region of Origin

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for its hardy and tribal goat hair based flatweave kilims embroidered in intricate geometric patterns.

Material Details

Goat hair fibers are longer and firmer than those of sheep’s wool. Typically in kilims, goat hair is woven into a durable flatweave rug, then intricate designs are carefully hand-embroidered using wool yarn.

How to Style This Rug

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