Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Stripes—a simple and timeless classic
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • 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
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
Region of Origin

Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

Material Details

Hemp is one of the most durable natural fibers out there. Turkish artisans crafted pure hemp rugs up until the ‘60s—when cannabis production became illegal. Because of the ban, hemp kilims are incredibly hard to come by. In this instance, Anatolian symbols woven from wool have been hand-embroidered into the hemp base.

How to Style This Rug

Extra-large rugs bigger than 7’ x 10’ help define larger spaces.
