Why you'll love it
This rug was made in Malayta, an area in central Anatolia known for its coarsely knotted rugs and geometric designs woven by Kurdish tribes.
- A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey).
- Lined with a repeating set of five medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction.
- A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures.
- 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 crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette.
