Turkish Carpets

Turkish carpets are one of the best and most effective ways to decorate your home in a distinctive and eye catching fashion. They are an example of great human skill and craftsmanship. They give your décor a truly international touch and also make it cozy, comfortable and act as a good deterrent for dust and dirt.

Origin

The production of Turkish Rugs started from the medieval Seljuk period. Myriad sociopolitical, economic, cultural, regional and environmental factors led to their creation. Earlier carpets were exclusively made for personal use. But their brilliance made them popular and carpets were made in large numbers for court and export. Most carpets have their origin from various regions of Anatolia and so are also called Anatolian. Rugs of various regions have various symbols, designs and patterns. These days, rugs are both machine made and hand woven. Women and girls take up carpet weaving as a means of earning money. Whether they are hand crafted or machine made, there is no compromise on the quality, brilliant artistry and unique designs.

Method

Wool is the most used material for carpet making since its inception. Wool is utilized both in its original form as well as after dyeing. Cotton and silk make up other two materials used. Vertical and horizontal looms are used in carpet making. Turkish rugs and carpets use the symmetrical double loop knotting style. Each and every knot is secured on two warps. As such, the pile thread is bound tightly with two warps which make stronger and more intricately designed rug.
