The Beach Shorts + Star Midnight
The Anatolia collection features four simple motifs that are typically used in the weaving of rugs in Anatolia, also known as Asia Minor and modern day Turkey. Rugs form a fundamental part of cultural history, with artisans weaving in their own interpretations of long standing symbols such as these.
This edition features the Star motif, a map of happiness and prosperity. This Anatolian weaving motif is related to fertility. Due to technical difficulties, star motifs having five points are used only on rugs. Usually star motifs have eight or more points.
