Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
  • A concentric floral pattern mimics a lush garden or field of flowers
  • Oversized birds, like a peacock or phoenix, represent regal beauty and a tad of opulence
  • Just like a modern-day barber's pole, this pattern features alternating slanted stripes
  • Named after the city of Herat, Afghanistan, the Herati pattern features a rose centerpiece surrounded by four leaves
Region of Origin

Ladik, located in central Anatolia, is one of the oldest carpet-making areas in all of Turkey. Rugs from this town tend to have a much tighter weave and higher knot count, and are recognized for their finely woven Persian 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.

How to Style This Rug

Extra-large rugs bigger than 7’ x 10’ help define larger spaces.
