Rug Details

  • One-of-a-kind vintage rug — only one in stock!
  • 100% wool pile on cotton foundation
  • Dimensions: 3'2" x 8'8" (97 cm x 265 cm)
  • Low pile: approximately 0.2" (0.5 cm)
  • Color palette: salmon pink, blush beige, warm vanilla beige
  • This rug is not perfectly straight. Its body curves slightly, showing the hand of the people who made it. It also indicates the process of time, as natural fibers respond to their environments differently, occasionally expanding or shrinking at different rates.
  • Curator's Notes

    Motifs
    • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
    • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
    • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
    Region of Origin

    Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral designs.

    Material Details

    Wool is the most widely used fiber in Turkish rug design. Not only is it plentiful in supply, it’s durable, long-lasting, and soft—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. This wool pile is knotted onto a cotton foundation, another popular choice in rug design. The cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime—or ten.
