Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • Classic and timeless Persian motifs feature intricate patterns and floral designs, all framed by a border
  • Boteh flames (or sprouting seeds) stand for growth and regeneration—they’re known as the “Seed of Life” in Anatolia and the inspiration for India’s traditional paisley patterns
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
Region of Origin

Kayseri, a key rug production center in central Anatolia, is known for rugs featuring finely knotted Persian or geometric motifs.

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 plush—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. This wool pile is knotted onto a cotton foundation, another popular choice in rug design. The cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime—or ten.

How to Style This Rug

Large rugs from 6’ x 9’ to 7’ x 10’ make great centerpieces.
