Looking for a jolt of energy? A geometric rug could be just the thing!
All About Geometric RugsIn the 16th century, Anatolia was known for creating carpets with stylized animal and geometric designs. Through new cultural contacts across the continent, rugs designed around a central medallion came into vogue and the style of these Ottoman court rugs spread to other weaving centers. However they never fully overtook the regional carpet traditions, and since that very time Caucasian and Armenian carpets have retained their customary geometric patterns and kilims (or flat-weaves) remain popular.
Materials MatterRugs with a geometric pattern are most commonly hand-tufted from wool, viscose, or polyester. There are many handwoven options that tend to be made of synthetics, as well as flat-woven choices that can be made from any singular or combination of the above materials. The pile height of our geometric rugs generally runs between 1/4-inch and under up to 1-inch.
