Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
Region of Origin

Woven in Southeastern Anatolia in the region of Hakkari,Turkey by the Herki Kurdish Tribal group, who are well known for their exquisite weaving, which use naturally dyed glossy wool, resulting in bright and vivid colors.
