Turkish rugs have been highly prized since the 13th century and are considered glorious, collectible works of art. Despite being handmade by nomadic tribes and mountain-dwellers, the rugs’ artistry, luxurious texture and ornate styling bespeak the opulence and wealth of the Ottoman empire. Palaces during the Ottoman reign were heavily laden with luxurious commissioned rugs.
Each rug usually was accompanied by a miniature version called a yastik, which would originally have been folded to make a sort of pillow or draped over sofas to decorate a living room. Trademark Turkish styles feature geometric shapes, clean designs and saturated colors.
There are many different types of Turkish rugs, with each type featuring its own texture and design and representing a specific time and place:
Kilim: Kilim rugs were produced by migrating nomads, called “Yürüks,” who traveled through the regions of Anatolia, the Balkans and parts of Iran, in often severe climactic conditions, and they lived in tents. They made these pileless flat-weave rugs to cover the tent floors and prevent the insides from becoming damp. As such, they were made of goat hair, which is stiffer than sheep’s wool, making the tent almost waterproof. Some kilims were made as prayer rugs, which are smaller and are designed to include the recognizable architectural feature mihrab, found in mosques and indicating the direction of Mecca in which to turn for prayer. Kilims feature bright colors and tapestry-like textures.
Oushak: These rugs are made using a particular family of designs that originate in Uşak, Turkey. They’re recognizable for their large scale. They’re predominately made from lustrous wool and silk and feature muted earth tones such as cinnamon, saffron, green, ivory and gray. Usually they feature geometric pattern and you will find them with an allover design or with a central medallion motif.
Kazak: Made in the Republic of Armenia, Kazak rugs feature striking geometric designs, detailed border patterns and high-quality dyes, usually in red or blue.
Soumak: Stronger and thicker than a kilim, a Soumak features a flat weave that gives the rug its name. The weave provides a smooth front face and rough back — a herringbone effect that resembles embroidery — whereas a kilim is smooth on both sides. It’s stronger than a kilim though still pileless. The colors found in Soumaks are bright and vibrant.
Interestingly, the human figure is considered sacrilegious and therefore is rarely seen on Turkish rugs and kilims. They may be used to remember a departed family member, however.
Typical symbols in Turkish rugs include:
Star: The Turks of Central Asia once believed that the movement of stars affected people’s destinies and influenced the world’s daily matters. Seeing a star during a dream was considered a sign of happiness.
Mihrap: a praying niche pattern featuring a place of honor for a king or God, surrounded by flowers, vases and fountains, seen as a gate to Paradise.
Tree: may be seen individually or in a group, symbolizes unification and reincarnation, the tree of life, life’s regenerative processes
Plane Tree: the Garden of Eden
Swastika: the wheel of destiny, a symbol of good luck, abundance and fertility, may symbolize the sun and stars
Pomegranate: fertility, the seeds also represent the faithful assembling in church. The pomegranate is still seen as a strong token of fertility in Turkey; during marriage ceremonies, friends and relatives throw pomegranate seeds at the couple and use the scattered seeds to foretell how many children the couple will have.
Triangle/amulets: seen also in Persian rugs, protect against the evil eye, malice and foreign dangers
Elibelinde, or “hands on hips”: a stylized female, symbol of motherhood and fertility, seen especially on Anatolian textiles
Fruits and cereals: those with many seeds, including pomegranate and figs, as well as grains such as wheat and barley symbolize fertility
Jewels of Mohammed: six- or eight-pointed stars seen in Jewish imagery, seen frequently in Turkish rugs
Ram Horn: shown in pairs, symbolizes fertility, multiplication, health, heroism, power, masculinity and respect. When used with Elibelinde, it represents the father. Curve of horn represents eternity.
Ewer, or Jug: cleanliness, the faithful performing ablution
Eye: widely used on kilims, one of the most powerful symbols, used to ward off evil, all good or bad comes through the eyes
Eye and Arrow: An eye flanked by arrows symbolizes good luck, wish for a good harvest, good luck at hunting
Hand: good luck, protection against evil eye, blasphemy or magic
Scorpion: protection from evil, pride and independence
Serpent: wisdom, power, happiness, fertility, symbol for the god of medicine, warding off malice
Hooks: protection, used to surround symbols for health and happiness
Hair band: Presented to a bride during a wedding ceremony, a hair band symbol in a rug symbolizes the desire for marriage, happiness and good luck.
Earring: a gift to a bride during marriage ceremony, symbolizes marriage and expectations for marriage
Ying Yang: harmony, balance, love between men and women
Chest: For Anatolians, the chest symbolizes a bride’s trousseau
Comb: cleanliness, often used alongside the ewer
Running Water: paradise, fertility, life, cleanliness, desire to overcome obstacles
Bird: higher state of being, angels, supernatural help, message from other worlds, happiness, unexpected good news. May be seen on rugs perching on the tree of life.
Dragon: protection, wards off evil and sickness
Phoenix: good luck, happiness, destruction and re-creation, reincarnation
Oleander: protection of happiness
Camel: importance of camels for the tribal people who make rugs
Burdock: plant that sticks to clothing and animal hair and wards off evil eye, symbolizes abundance

What makes a Persian rug the finest of them all? Put simply, they are some of the most complex and labor-intensive handmade items in the world, and they have been made the same way dating back to ages BC. They are produced by nomads, shepherds from the Quashqui and Bakhtiari tribes, whose approximately 1.6 million sheep graze on the green slopes of Iran’s Fars Province, which is considered the homeland of Persia. Their wool, comprised of long, tough fibers and shorn only once each year, is ideal for carpet-making and makes these rugs exceedingly durable and long-lasting. The fibers are twisted into threads by the hands of tribal women, then they are colored with dyes made from natural ingredients such as pomegranate, turmeric, acorn shells or green leaves, which are boiled in huge pots with the threads. Once dried, the threads are woven on looms using a trademark single looping knot. 【more…】
Persian rugs — considered the grande dame, the queen mother, the standard by which other rugs are measured — are Oriental, though not all Oriental rugs are Persian.
The term “Oriental carpet” applies to those rugs produced in Asia, in the region spanning from India through the Middle East and into China. Oriental carpets may hail from Pakistan, Tibet, Nepal, Turkey, China or Iran; however, no rug is considered Persian unless it was produced in Iran. Authentic Oriental rugs are hand-knotted. 【more…】
By learning the meanings of Persian carpet patterns, you will be able to “read a rug” and understand what the weaver wants to tells us. The names of Persian rug patterns are derived from the city, village, or tribe where particular patterns were first woven or traded. 【more…】
While Persian rugs come in many styles, variations, sizes and colors, one thing is certain and that is that a Persian rug can be very valuable depending on a wide range of variables. Handmade Persian rugs collectors, investors and casual home decorators purchase can maintain their value and even greatly increase in value over time. One consideration that is often used as a determining factor to decide that value of this type of rug is the quality of the actual silk or wool that is used to create a rug. 【more…】
An Oriental rug design is comprised of several components, so let’s first define those:
Borders: There are usually two borders on a Persian rug — the main border is the widest section of design around the outside of the rug, while the guard border is usually narrow and lies inside the main border. 【more…】
The customer purchased this rug to decorate his villa in California.He wrote to tell me that he is looking forward to receiving the rug,I am sure he will love it.
The hunting scene rug design is an ancient weaving style. Originally created for Shahs and imperial leaders, the Persian hunting rug embodies a regal handsomeness and masculinity that is seldom seen in Persian carpets. Rugs bearing the classic Persian hunting design include the oldest existent pile carpet as well as the most valuable silk carpets known today. 【more…】
