Dollhouse Area Rug BATI ANADOLU - Petit Point Pattern

Today I would like to present you a new dollhouse miniature petit point pattern for an area rug - Bati Anadolu. This is a reproduction of an antique Turkish rug, 15th century.

This design can make a beautiful pillow in real size if stitched on 22 canvas.

The dragon motifs, that you can see in the field of the rug, were originated in the Far East. They represent a mythological creature believed to be the master of air and water. It is also the guard of the tree of life.

The pattern was recreated from a survived piece of an actual rug, depicted on this image:

321 x 297 stitches, 12 colors

22 canvas - 14.59" x 13.50" (37,06 x 34,29 cm)

40 count silk gauze - 8.03" x 7.42" (20,38 x 18,86 cm)

50 count silk gauze - 6.42" x 5.94" (16,31 x 15,09 cm)

There are also other patterns available based on that design:

Bati Runner:

Bati Staircase Runner

Bati Pillows.

The pattern is charted for stitching with DMC. However, I would advise to stitch with Gloriana silk, or another over dyed silk of your choice to give a rug that antique worn look.

Muy bonita alfombra. Lo antiguo como lo es esta del siglo XV me encantan, y los dragones de oriente representando una criatura mitológica es interesante.
Un abrazo

What a beautiful design, Natalia! I especially love seeing the old original scrap with the design you put together! The colors are so rich and warm... and I like the description of the dragons too!
Happy New Year to you!

A simply gorgeous design for a Turkish rug. I wish I had the talent and the
eye sight to make one.
Thanks for sharing the history of the design.
Hugs, Drora

What a beautiful design... okay, you already had me with the dragons *LOL* but the colours and the rest of the pattern is beautiful, too. It was fun to see the original piece, your source of inspiration - a stunning pattern for sure.
