Curator's Notes

  • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
  • A decorative fringe has been hand-tied not just at the top and bottom of the rug, but around all four sides
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.
