Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Originally designed for French nobility, these floral motifs hail from the town of Aubusson in central France
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
Region of Origin

Taspinar, in south central Anatolia, is known for high-quality wool rugs with Anatolian motifs that feature elongated hexagonal medallions with stepped edges and geometric floral details.

Material Details
