Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Classic and timeless Persian motifs feature intricate patterns and floral designs, all framed by a border
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • Lined with a repeating set of four medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction
  • A simple, open field pops in contrast with the rug’s more complex borders
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
Region of Origin

Ladik, located in central Anatolia, is one of the oldest carpet-making areas in all of Turkey. Rugs from this town tend to have a much tighter weave and higher knot count, and are recognized for their finely woven Persian 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.
