Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • 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

Region of Origin

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for its hardy and tribal goat hair based flatweave kilims embroidered in intricate geometric patterns.

Material Details

Goat hair fibers are longer and firmer than those of sheep’s wool. Typically in kilims, goat hair is woven into a durable flatweave rug, then intricate designs are carefully hand-embroidered using wool yarn.
