Curator's Notes

Motifs

  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
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

Large rugs from 6’ x 9’ to 7’ x 10’ make great centerpieces.
