Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Lined with a repeating set of three medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters
  • Triangular amulet design—believed to protect against evil spirits and bad luck
  • Just like a modern-day barber's pole, this pattern features alternating slanted stripes
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
Region of Origin

Dosemealti, located in southwestern Anatolia (just north of Antalya’s seaside location), is well known for rugs that depict Anatolian-style motifs, all centered around a stylized cross.

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 incredibly soft—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on.

How to Style This Rug

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