This rug features a variety of design techniques; interrupted or “fence” striped details alternate with linked diamond patterns and areas of richly colored medallions. The Eastern Anatolian province from where this style of rug originates is well-regarded for its use of moderated, subtle tones and sophisticated graphic compositions.
