Description
Kayseri, formerly called Caesarea, is a rug production hub in central Turkey (Anatolia). Central Anatolia is generally known to be one of core areas of carpet manufacturing in this country. Apart from Kayseri, other weaving regions in this part of Anatolia are Konya, Niğde and Sivas – all of them differ as far as the designs and traditions are concerned. Kayseri rugs –produced for export for the most part – are widely recognized for their fine weaving. Made of wool with cotton foundation, Kayseri carpet often imitates the patterns that can be seen on rugs from nearby towns, like Hereke, Kum-Kapı. Ürgüp, Avanos and İncesu. Silk Turkish Rugs. Silk or artificial silk rugs are also quite common. Characterized by their dense weaving, rugs from Avanos have religious designs on them. The bright red field of such carpet is decorated with mosca (protective amulet) and have golden yellow borders. Ingenious ornamental patterns adorn the whole carpet, so that it draws one's attention immediately.
