Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • This rug has a minimal design with a single color field, showcasing the yarn's texture and sheen
  • 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
Region of Origin

Konya is the former capital of the Selcuk empire—where the earliest traditions of weaving can be traced back to. Today, the area is still a key producer of rugs in Turkey.

Material Details

Hemp is one of the most durable natural fibers out there. Turkish artisans crafted pure hemp rugs up until the ‘60s—when cannabis production became illegal. Women used hemp rugs outdoors for kitchen working, laying wheat, rice, and herbs on top of them to dry. Hemp is especially good for summer or hot climates: it stays cool underfoot even as temperatures rise.

How to Style This Rug

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