Kayseri: The carpets woven in Kayseri and its surroundings make up the major part of Turkish carpet art. Kayseri carpets fall in two groups: Bunyan carpets and Yahyali carpets. The wrap of Bunyan carpets is cotton and the weaving thread is wool and floss silk. Commonly used colours are natural ones, white black, grey and purple. The grounds are usually red, blue and deep blue. The most important feature that differentiates Yahyali carpets from Bunyan carpets is that both the wrap and weaving thread are wool. Another characteristic of Yahyali carpets is that they use geometric and flower motifs and that all the threads are coloured in madder. The dominance of navy blue, red, brown and grey is very clearly seen on these carpets.
