Europeans introduced a particular style of Turkish design in the 19th Century.The new design introduced was a blend of old and new-era tastes, giving rug design a new life. The transformed carpets were made more soothing and the color combinations were new and unique eye-catchers.
Originally these carpets were made in Central and Western Anatolia during the reign of the Seljuk dynasty, from the 11th to the 13thCenturies. Then later the dynasty was taken over by the Ottoman Empire. During the Seljuk dynasty many areas like Konya, Oushak, and Bergama produced carpets and rugs, which are still present today in museums worldwide. ManyTurkish masterpieces were made in Oushak, which still has influence in Turkish design today.
The qualities of the Vintage Turkish rugs available at Keivan Woven Artsare a collection of the original patterns and designs, which were carefully studied and then executed by our fine-skilled team members. The specialty of these Turkish designs is that they are always in geometric form or feature prayer places or forts. Turkish carpets have less human and animal portrayals, as the Quran does not allow it.
The demand for carpets began in ancient times, from the medieval ages, when kings’ and queens’ palaces used to be decorated with carpets, both on floors and walls. Earlier rugs were made by hand, so the work was laborious and hence costly; therefore, these carpets could only be afforded by the people of elite society. That is why the carpets were considereda sign and symbol of royalty and nobility.
