SHORT HISTORY OF RUG WEAVING

It is impossible to prove exactly when and where rug weaving began, as there is no reliable source, but it can be traced back as early the Neolithic age (7000 B.C.). The first examples consisting of warp and weft were textile products that resembled flat weave kilims. Then rugs were created by forming knots to make a pile.

According to a scientist, rug weaving must have originated in the dry steppe regions where the nomadic tribes lived. Central Asia was a suitable location for the first rug-weaving center because of the availability of land for herding sheep and because of the climate of the region.

A rug in the purest Turkish tradition, a beautiful handmade Turkish carpet. A work of art in itself and unique.
