Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
  • Boteh flames (or sprouting seeds) stand for growth and regeneration—they’re known as the “Seed of Life” in Anatolia and the inspiration for India’s traditional paisley patterns
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
Region of Origin

Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and 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

Add an accent with petite rugs up to 3’ x 5’.
