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
  • Twin pendants flank a central medallion
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
Region of Origin

Avanos, found in central Anatolia, is famous for its handcrafted goods, including rugs and pottery. Rugs from this area tend to feature geometric floral motifs and scalloped-edge fields.

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.
