  • 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
    • 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
    Region of Origin

    Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

    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.
