Explore our diverse range of Turkish carpets and experience the timeless allure of Anatolian culture woven into every thread.

It is believed the oldest carpet in the world is Pazirik Carpet, named after the area where it was discovered, and was weaved by Central Asian Turks in the 6th-5th centuries. This rug is currently exhibited in Leningrad Hermitage Museum. In Turkey, carpets are named after the attributes or characteristics of the design of the region. They are generally in standard sizes within a few inches difference. Plant extracts are used to dye the carpets. Maturity of the plant, boiling degree, the dose of the pigment and composition of the water (chalky or lack of chalky) all affect the color tone. Buckthorn especially, known as “golden tree”, is a precious natural dye source.

The original carpet workbench has the appearance of a wooden frame. Warp ropes are put side by side vertically on the workbench according to the attribute and size of the carpet. After preparing the warp, knitting called“çiti”(a knitting to prevent carpet unraveling) shaped like a chain is prepared by leaving some margins for chenille. Rug weaving for approximately 4 cm is made to prevent knows sliding. So, the carpet is ready to touch. Weaver sits on a stool known as “istol” and weaves models drawn on millimetric papers with colored node ropes which were made as small ball of yarns. After the carpet is woven, to fixate it, rug woven is done again. After chain knitting is done, the carpet is taken out of the workbench from the warp section by cutting. It is washed with soap to purify it from dirt and dust that are stuck during the weaving process.

Turkish carpets reflecting the feeling, thoughts and dreams of Turkish women are collected in four groups.

Wool Carpets: They are woven since the 14th century. The most eligible wool is adult sheep wool. Yağcıbedir, Milas, Döşemealtı, Yahyalı, Taşpınar, Kars, Nigde, Yuntdağ, Yörük (Nomad), Shirvan, Başmakçı, Konya Kazak, Sultanhan and Kula are some of them. In spite of red, dark blue, white, light blue and yellow are used in western and southern regions,beige,brown, black, turquoise and cream are used in central and eastern regions.

Wool-Cotton Carpets: In these carpets wefts and warps are cotton and nodes are wool. They are the most durable carpets due to their tight textile. Kayseri, Konya, Ladik and Hereke are the most important regions that these carpets are woven.

Silk Carpets: Breeding of silk worms was started in the 5th century A.D.Having a hundred nodes in a square centimeter, weaving these carpets is one of the hardest branches of carpet art. The period between preparation of strings and weaving can be months. Kayseri and Hereke silk carpets are masterpieces.

Thin Silk Carpets: They are the most requested carpets of collectors.The carpets woven in Hereke are irreplaceable because they are unique and genuine. These carpets having between 225 and 230 knots per square centimeter are priceless. Therefore, they are called “the most precious of the world”.
