Turkish Carpet

Although it emerges from the traditions of the great nomadic Turkic peoples, Turkish carpets, such as Acem carpets, began to be produced in order to be given to palaces in large workshops and to be sent abroad, taking on a versatile urban appearance during the medieval Seljuk period. During the early Ottoman Empire, more than one type of design reached maturity, and most modern production today is suited to the style of that period, especially for the purpose of sending abroad. Turkish carpets and rugs are produced in different and distinctive types in many regions of Anatolia. Important differentiating features among these species are: tools, manufacturing methods, patterns and motifs, geography, cultural identity and purpose of use.
