Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A prominent, oversized 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
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
Region of Origin

Kula, in western Turkey, is known for its tribal and geometric rug 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

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
