Erzurum Carpet
Item Details
Description
Turkish Rugs are a major component of the carpet weaving traditions in the Middle East. They are among the rugs with the most diversity, both with respect to the type of weave, quality and density of knots, variation in designs, and the type of make. It was largely the Turkish people and related groups from Central Asia who introduced the knotted pile carpet to the Islamic world. While most antique Persian rugs are fine and intricate, the antique Turkish rugs are extremely desirable by interior decorators. Since many of the antique rugs from Turkey boast larger scale design patterns that are usually also set against softer colors, they do have a very decorative appeal. The early Turkish rugs are also some of the most collectible rugs in today’s market due to their more primitive designs and the fact that not many were produced. The history of Turkish rugs and weavings is as complex as it is ancient. The production of fine rugs and carpets is a practice that dates back millennia. Standing at the crossroads of the great civilizations of the east and west, Turkey has long acted as a natural go-between for European traders seeking to trade in exotic goods, as well as Persian traders seeking to do business with those in the west. Erzurum, an important city on the ancient caravan route between Anatolia and Iran, is noted for its praying kilims which are made bigger than those woven in the other parts of Anatolia as Turkish Kilim Rug. Wolf track and wolf mouth motifs are used as border pattern on these kilims. Tree of life design, which is also one of the favorite patterns of Erzurum flat weaving, is used as a border design and central motif, located in the center prayer arches.
