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.
