Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Deeply meaningful symbols to the women weavers of Anatolia, these interconnected medallions represent pregnancy and motherhood
  • A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
Region of Origin

Kars, found in the easternmost part of Turkey (near the Caucasus border), is known for its rugs woven with modified Caucasian designs. Almost always constructed with an all-wool foundation, these rugs are coarsely woven in either earth-toned natural wool colors (like cream, gray, and brown) or pastel pinks and blues.

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.
