Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • 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
  • An array of stripes in alternating colors—each stripe filled with stylized blossoms
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
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

Large rugs from 6’ x 9’ to 7’ x 10’ make great centerpieces.
