An Extensive Collection of Antique Tribal Turkish Rugs

Turkish Rugs - In many ways, the famous Turkish rugs that were produced in the historic region of Anatolia (Turkey) were the rugs that started it all. These carpets were among the first wave of Oriental antique carpets to be exported into Europe. The Turkish rugs were prized commodities and artistically influential pieces. The iconic guls, allover patterns, prayer design rugs and small repeating patterns found on these carpets, worked their way into the iconic paintings of the European masters, including Memling, Lotto, Bellini, Holbein and many others. These painters were inspired so much by Turkish rugs and the design motifs they feature that the artists have lent their names to some of these famous Turkish patterns. One of the most famous artists that incorporated rugs from Turkey in his painting was the great and iconic 16th century painter Hans Holbein.

The styles of Turkish rugs varies widely. Bergama rugs, for example, produced tribal-influenced Turkoman pieces, Hereke rugs feature elegant curve-linear patterns worthy of Ottoman palaces and the most well known of all Turkish weaving centers - Oushak produces decorative room-sized carpets that are revered, above all else, for their soft pastel-coloration.

The Romanian master weaver - Theodor Tuduc, also produced exceptional carpets. His rugs were based on existing styles and designs from the Caucasus, Turkey as well as Persia. Antique Turkish rugs are elegant and beautifully varied in look, texture, quality and design.

Turkish Rugs are a major component of the carpet weaving traditions in the Middle East. It was largely the Turkish people and related groups from Central Asia who introduced the knotted pile carpet to the Islamic world. The largest and oldest collection of early Oriental rugs comes from Turkey. The so-called geometric or Seljuk carpets from the thirteenth century have been well preserved in the mosques of Konya and other towns in Central Anatolia. While most antique Persian rugs are fine and intricate the antique Turkish rugs are extremely desirable by interior decorators. This is mostly because many of the rugs feature large scale all-over designs in lighter color combinations. 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.

Many of the Turkish rugs are beloved for their lustrous pastels, beautifully stylized arabesques and monumental botanical designs. Anatolia played an indispensable role... introducing Oriental carpets to Europe and creating many elaborate wool rugs that appeal to Western designers and consumers today. Turkey produces a tremendous variety of symbol-filled rugs, palatial medallion carpets and decorative rugs that feature an assortment of Safavid Persian patterns depicted in a distinctly Turkish manner.

Oushak, Konya, Milas, Sivas Ghiordes and the Ottoman weavers in Hereke all produce a number of distinctive Turkish rug styles. The legendary antique Turkish rugs that feature prayer designs, with their decorative pillars, angular mihrab and red ground are regional icons as are the splendid medallion rugs, fluid Safavid-style arabesques and angular botanical decorations, which are incomparably elegant and stylish. Exquisite oxidized colors, posh pastels and whimsical botanical designs make Turkish rugs essential designer carpets for rustic spaces and palatial drawing rooms alike.
