Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Lined with a repeating set of three medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
Region of Origin

Kayseri, a key rug production center in central Anatolia, is known for rugs featuring finely knotted Persian or geometric motifs.

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.
