Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
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.
