Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A prominent, oversized medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
Region of Origin

Taspinar, in south central Anatolia, is known for high-quality wool rugs with Anatolian motifs that feature elongated hexagonal medallions with stepped edges and geometric floral details.

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.
