Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • 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
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
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.

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.
