Types of Carpets and Kilims in Turkey

The carpets derive their names from the localities in which they were produced, as well as from the techniques of their manufacture, the characteristic patterns of their ornamentation, the layout of the design, and the colour scheme.

Anatolia has a very rich weaving culture. Every single city, town and village is a weaving centre. An understanding of Turkish carpets and flat woven coverings can only be possible through a detailed research of those centres.

Anatolia is a synonym for that part of Turkey which is in Asia, traditionally called Asia Minor. In all carpets described as "ANATOLIAN" the Turkish or Gordes Knot is used.
