Turkish Rug and Rug Business


Turkish Rug and Rug Business

Starting from primitive hand weaving in various parts of the world, we see that weavings that require a lot of labor and superior technique are made in museums and even in settlements that continue this tradition today.

The rug is a work of art that demands the highest technique and creative ability among these weaving works and works.


The fact that the word is attributed to its Turkish origin by European Turcologists proves that the Turks first put forward this work.

There are only two types of knot techniques used in creating the rug Turkish or Persian hand-knot.

Since the determination of which of them is old in terms of cultural history proves that nation's contribution to the world culture. The debates on this subject have continued for years.

Finally, when the Russian archaeologist Rudenko brought to light a rug measuring approximately 1.90 x 2 m in the fifth kurgan in the Pazirik region of the Altai mountains and presented it for examination, the knots in it were Turkish hand-knots, thus BC. V or III.

Since there is no Persian rug older than this century-old Turkish knotted rug, it has been proven that the Turks brought such an important work as a rug to the cultural history before the Iranians. The knotting technique in this rug, known worldwide as the Pazirik rug, has also increased the interest of art historians in Turkish rugs.

Turkish Rug Motifs and...

Although the names of the masters are not mentioned in the rugs woven in Turkey, the motifs and ornaments are widely recognized.

For example, a tablet, a slit in her stomach, her hand on her waist, rosebuds, rosary, vase, wolf's mouth, sword, eagle, double bow, cloud, cup, hand, and hundreds of other flowers, herbs, and animals are the symbol colors and lines of our young girls' dreams. It comes to life in the loops of the rug.

In addition to the complex structure of the rug bench, the diversity and variety of the tools and equipment used are also important.

If we give only the names of the tools used in all processes, it will be better understood why this weaving branch is important: spindle whorl, spinning wheel, hank, sole (pillow), toothing, wool comb, spinning, tensioner, global, stick twig, mallet (shackle), yarn. , kirmen, kolchak, öreke, knitter, ball, etc...

Root dyes, which provide that richness of color that makes the rug more beautiful with each passing day and use, are prepared with a different effort. Knowing what kind of color will be obtained from which plant is one of the most important secrets of the rug weaving tradition in Anatolia. Some known plants and natural dyes derived from them are:

Dried apricot leaves: gives a light flesh color. The walnut's twig, bark, or root gives the green less brown, but the fresh walnut shell makes the green darker.

Golden brown with onion peel, reddish-brown with an oak leaf, pale pink with poppy flower, mauve from the root of the barberry bush, yellow from the root sprout, greenish-brown from the ash mixed with ash, straw yellow from wild mint (peppercorn), blue blooming spruce at the time of grapes brown, dark flesh color from euphorbia, dark yellow from the tiny fruit of the short tree called buckthorn, light blue, dark blue or black colors are obtained depending on the boiling time.

As in other essential products of our folklore, those who weave the carpets have been forgotten and lost in an anonymous identity. The name of the master of any carpet is unknown.

The terms and phrases of those young girls and women who knit their surroundings, nature, feelings, and dreams into threads are never known. The only known name is the name of the region: Isparta, Ladik, Gördes, Döşemealtı, Hereke, Sivas, Yağcıbedir, Bünyan, Milas, Konya, Demirci or outside of Turkey, Kyrgyz, Kazakh, Isfahan, Khorasan, Bukhara, Teke-Turkmen etc... named according to their motives.
