Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • 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
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Region of Origin

Hereke, found just east of Istanbul, is the most renowned carpet-making town in all of Turkey. Because sultans would source rugs from this area for their palaces, Hereke carpets are widely known as “palace carpets.” These rugs feature classic Persian designs with a fine-knot density, and are crafted mostly from wool and occasionally Bursa silk. In recent years, the region has suffered several earthquakes, halting the once-flourishing rug industry. Because these particular carpets are no longer in production, their value has gone way up and they’ve become highly coveted among collectors.

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.
