Beautiful Turkish Rugs
Turkish rugs are an ancient art form as well as a staple of the Turkish textile industry. Turkish rugs usually refer to flat, woven carpets that come in a variety of colors and styles. Most rugs feature intricate designs that reflect various symbols and motifs along with mythic, religious, or literary scenes. Different types of rugs exist, each classified according to standards that include design and the textile fiber used. The techniques employed during the rug’s construction also distinguish them. Rugs that originate from Turkey are mostly hand-woven, almost always by women. The materials used to construct the rugs are wool, cotton, and silk.
