Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • 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

Kilims constructed from a blend of goat hair and cotton are incredibly long-lasting. Both fibers are known for their durability, and together create a very sturdy frame. Cotton is rigid, strong, and prevents warping over time, while goat hair is a rugged natural fiber with long, bristly strands that add texture. Once this durable foundation is built, all decorative embroidery is done with vegetable-dyed wool yarn.
