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
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters
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.
