Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A tree of life (a symbol found in several religions around the world) alludes to the Garden of Eden
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Region of Origin

Yagcibedir rugs are crafted from pure wool and produced in the mountain villages of northwestern Turkey. These carpets are known for their extremely high quality, geometric motifs, and distinct red and dark blue color palettes.
