Kayseri is both a proven and a city in Central Turkey. It is located on an ancient road that was important for trade. Because of this, the area has been conquered and occupied many times over the centuries. It has been occupied by groups that include the Timurids, Seljuks, Byzantines, Armenians, and Ottoman Empire. Each of these influences left its mark on the artwork of the area, developing into a style that is unique to Kayseri rugs.
This rug shows many features that represent the influence of the various cultures that have left their mark on the artwork of the region. You can see the central medallion surrounded by an intricate vine-inspired background, as you often see on Persian court rugs. The layers of borders have areas that seem to have an oriental influence with elements of Chinese or Mongolian design. You can also see traces of distinctly Anatolian motifs. It is these elements that give the rug a charming old-world feel and an elegance that makes it stand out.
The color palette of this rug features earthy browns, creams, and spicy reds. These colors add to the richness of the design and will help you create a regal feel in the space. This rug is an excellent way to add a sense of formality to the space and would pair well with your collection of antiques and classic finds.
