Yastiks: A Comparative Study of the Designs of Published and Unpublished Examples
This presentation will cover a range of topics that were not in Brian Morehouse’s 1996 book, Yastiks: Cushion Covers and Storage Bags of Anatolia (Philadelphia 8th ICOC, Inc.) as well as presenting new examples that have appeared since the book’s publication 25 years ago. Brian will also bring into focus images with their early history that suggest that some yastik motifs and stylistic content may go back many centuries. Weavers of yastiks were great borrowers of designs from both rugs and velvets, and we shall follow the transfer of certain motifs and design constructs to features found on yastiks. Most importantly, this talk will explore the changing visual language over time within certain yastik groups.
