Anatolian Oushak Design Silk Carpet
Turkish carpets, also referred to as Anatolian carpets, were produced by many ethnic and tribal groups in Turkey and Central Asia. Deriving originally from a utilitarian need to insulate homes against harsh winter cold, these rugs covered doors, walls, and floors, often in layers, for city or nomadic tent-dwellers alike. The carpets -- whether hand-knotted or flat weave -- were always hand-made (by women and girls) out of wool, cotton, and sometimes silk. The earliest flat weave rug is known to have existed in 7,000 BC, while knotted rugs are known to have existed in Asia Minor in the 8th and 9th century. During the Renaissance, these rugs appeared in European paintings to symbolize status and prestige.

Some of the most breathtaking examples of craftsmanship can be found in modern Indian carpets. These popular Oriental rugs commonly feature open fields with minor medallions and spandrels, surrounded by intricate floral borders, drawing their inspiration from a wide range of global styles and influences. Indian carpets exhibit a mesmerizing appearance that can vary significantly in size, complexity, color, and composition.
Due to Western influence and European demand, the weavers became very prolific to keep up with demand. Designs appealed to Western tastes employing large-scale patterns featuring millefleur (thousands of flowers) motifs. A subtle color palette of light blues, yellow, teal and rust characterize these Indian rugs. Many rugs feature a cotton foundation, are double weft and use an asymmetrical knot, while others feature a superb quality wool, resulting in a luxurious feel.
