Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Lined with a repeating set of five medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • A concentric floral pattern mimics a lush garden or field of flowers
  • An array of stripes in alternating colors—each stripe filled with stylized blossoms
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Region of Origin

Yagcibedir rugs are crafted from pure wool and produced in the mountain villages of northwestern Turkey. These carpets are known for their extremely high quality, geometric motifs, and distinct red and dark blue color palettes.

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.
