Curator's Notes

  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • A concentric floral pattern mimics a lush garden or field of flowers
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
  • A symmetrical overhead view of a floral rosette
Region of Origin

Kayseri, a key rug production center in central Anatolia, is known for rugs featuring finely knotted Persian or geometric motifs.

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.
