Tribal rugs are the contemporary branch of vintage rugs. Leaving the medallions and flowers aside, we eyewitness the modern waltz of the geometrical shapes.
In the world’s oldest rug, the Pazyryk carpet, we observe interbedded rectangular shapes, and in the middle, it shows off the perfect squares in lines. The geometrical shapes can also be seen in the edges with the nomadic figures, and people riding horses. This proves that the tribal designs on rugs were popular even 2,500 years ago, in the nomad culture.
The design and patterns may be the only features of tribal rugs that can be categorized as “tribal rugs” because their origin comes from different parts of the world and different cultures. Some tribal rugs may be accompanied by different motifs, which vary according to the specific culture. Turkish Konya rugs may involve a geometric medallion in the middle, with some arrow and hook motifs on the edges. Caucasian, Kazak, rugs usually display diamond or hexagonal shapes, with big inner flowers, which are actually made of small geometric patterns.
Since tribal rugs do not share their origin, there is not any particular color scheme for them. On Kazak rugs, we usually find tones of red and blue. However, Turkish Konya rugs have a massive range of color. From neutrals to rare ones, there are many options for you to use.
Turkish Konya rugs, as tribal runners, have been adapted to every corner of your house with their different colors and different purposes. In recent years, it is one of our best sellers, and indeed getting popular.
