    Oushak rugs have been woven in Western Turkey since the beginning of the Ottoman period. Historians attributed to them many of the great masterpieces of early Turkish carpet weaving from the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries. However, less is known about what happened to production there in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. When things become clearer toward 1900, the Oushak region re-emerges as a major center, this time for room-size decorative rugs. Antique Turkish carpets such as these are desirable today as highly decorative pieces. They come in central medallion designs as well as patterns of smaller allover medallions or scattered sprays of vine scroll and palmettes. They are notable for the grand, monumental scale of the designs, often a subdued palette in soft apricot and golden saffron tones whose pleasing qualities are enhanced by their particularly soft and lustrous wool.
    Cosmopolitan and sophisticated are two words that aptly describe Oushak’s luxurious carpets. Although the Ghiordes knot and the quirky angular designs have a certain primitive air, regional rugs are exceptionally unique and attractive. Without compromising to appeal to Western consumers, weavers here managed to create one of the country’s most desirable carpet styles. The angular arabesques and ornamental medallions are not dissimilar from Persian motifs but are executed in a more rectilinear manner and woven in a unique palette that includes bold Mediterranean-influenced colors and chic pastels.
    The Oushak Rugs have become the rugs of choice for many of the top interior decorators in the world today. For the most part they are not high quality rugs but that is what makes them so special. Since the knot count is considerably lower than the antique rugs made in Persian – antique Turkish rugs were woven with larger scale patterns. These carpets are also extremely desirable because of their colors – which are usually much lighter and “happier” in feel than rugs from other regions. So if you are looking for an antique or vintage rug with a large scale design and soft colors, theses should top your list.

  • Beautiful Bergama – 1930s Antique Turkish Rug – Tribal Carpet – 3’1″ x 6’2″ ft.
    Rated 0 out of 5
    $ 1,399.99
    Size: 3’1″ x 6’2″ ft.

    The fine wool-on-wool Turkish rugs woven in Bergama used only the finest quality fleece. Kazak-influenced Bergama carpets are often identified by their distinctive red wefts. Their varied styles include compartmental medallions, directional prayer niches, Kuba-style Leshgi stars and Memling guls. The local carpet-weaving tradition in Bergama began before the 1300’s and continued through the 20th century.

    Historically, Bergama was one of Anatolia’s wealthiest cities and an influential carpet producer. The decorative elements featured in Turkish Bergama carpets undoubtedly inspired the Old Masters. Designs found in these historic carpets are inextricably associated with European painters, including Lotto, Memling, Bellini and Holbein, whose names have come to describe these iconic designs.

    Each Bergama carpet features a stunning array of traditional symbols that have a universal meaning that transcends national borders. The style, color and symbolism of these unique Turkish carpets make them popular design pieces. These colorful rugs embody years of superstition and culture that are carefully represented through the use of artistic devices. Superficially, Bergama carpets are highly decorative, but they are also made from fine materials and packed with powerful symbols that contribute tangible and intangible qualities to these sophisticated pieces. Although Bergama rugs feature tribal designs and decorative symbols that have rustic, ethnic sensibilities, they are equally suited for contemporary and classically modern interiors.

    Bergama rugs (alt. Bergamo carpets) are made in the historic town of Bergama in northwest Turkey. The style of these rugs is neither Greek nor Turkish but rather resembles Kazaks and Gendje rugs of the Caucasus. The large bold geometric patterns are highly varied. The palate is typically brick red, dark blue and white although older rugs have some green and yellow. The pile is luxurious, long and silky. These antique rugs have woven bands of red, blue or red-and-blue stripe at the ends and are often square with either formal or tribal influences.

    Good condition! No stains, no odor. Sides and ends original. Contains medium low pile. As shown in pictures.

  • Crisp Colorful – New Kilim Rug – Flatweave Tribal Carpet – 3′ x 3’2″
    Rated 0 out of 5
    $ 199.99

    Size: 3′ x 3’2″ ft.

    Kilim, a word of Turkish origin, denotes a pileless textile of many uses produced by one of several flatweaving techniques that have a common or closely related heritage and are practiced in the geographical area that includes parts of Turkey (Anatolia and Thrace), North Africa, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia and China.

    Although at times you may find kilim rugs included in the general genre of “oriental rugs”, in more accepted practice kilims are in a class of their own.

    The major difference between a kilim area rug and a carpet or a pile rug is that whereas the design visible on a pile rugs is made by individual short strands of different color being knotted onto the warps and held together by pressing the wefts tightly, kilim designs are made by interweaving the variously colored wefts and warps, thus creating what is known as a flatweave.

  • Tremendous Turkish – 1900s Antique Yagci Bedir Rug – Anatolian Carpet – 3’7″ x 5’6″ ft
    Rated 0 out of 5
    $ 1,500.00

    Size:  3’7″ x 5’6″ ft

    Yagci Bedir rugs are the creation of the feelings and thoughts of Turkish women for over hundreds of years. Each color in each thread has a special meaning. The colors and patterns used in <strong>Yagci Bedir rugs are not randomly chosen and this has been understood years later. These rugs have always been produced by the descendents of Yagci Bedir Nomads, and from them they have taken their name.

    When “Yagci Bedir” nomads migrated from “Mid Asia” to “Anatolia”, they lived a quiet life in the beginning. They were mostly making a living from owning herds and doing related jobs and not paying any taxes to the Ottoman Empire government. In 1860s, the Ottoman Empire Mayor of Bursa , demanded the Yagci Bedir nomads to change their life styles. This caused a lot of protests and rebellions against the Mayor Ahmet Vefik Pasha. After these incidents, the elders of the Nomads have given the nickname of “Cadir yirtan Pasha” to Ahmet Vefik Pasha. The nickname translates as “Tent Ripper Pasha” . Then, Yagci Bedir Nomads  changed their lifestyle from Tribes to settlers and started paying taxes in the form of woodwork used in the ship making or bows ( Keman Yayi – Violin bow ). Rumors have it that the Nomads paid their taxes as bows, which in Turkish is ( Yay – Bow ). They were also called “Yayci Bedir” which translates to “Bow maker Bedir” . Some others say that the Nomads got their name from the “Bedirli Tribes” who carried oil to the muslim prophet Mohammad’s army during the battle at “Bedir” Saudi Arabia.

    At the end, they come across as sensitive and romantic society of the high plateaus. They may not have put their feelings on paper, but the figures and motifs used in the rugs are not a result of some coincidence – instead they have deep meanings.

    “Yagci Bedir” rugs are made in “Yagci Bedir” villages in Sindirgi region, an area part of the Balikesir City, and are the most important rugs made in this district. “Yagci Bedir” villages are Karakaya, Egridere, Esmedere, Çakilli and Alakir. Karakaya village is often visited by tours from abroad. Also, the Izmir base of NATO schedules twice-yearly trips to Karakaya.

    “Yagci Bedir” rugs are grouped in two categories as “Sindirgi” and “Bergama” types. Both types use the same colors and are made in same sizes. “Sindirgi” type rugs, mostly have two “Mihrabs”. A “Mihrab” is the symbol of the unity between religions and is used as a balance factor. There are 7 borders around the “Mihrab” . Inside the borders. there are wings ( Eagle wings ) and also you can see a pair of scales. The meaning of the scales is “No matter how successful or powerful you are, be just”. Between the “Mihrab” and the borders are the guards called “Kocabas”. “Kocabas” is the trusty DOG of the Nomads. In front of the “Kocabas”, is the pasture that contains different plants. “Bergama” types of “Yagci Bedir” rugs, usually have a big round mid section, which is also called ” Belly “.

    All these <strong>handknotted wool rugs are made in various sizes from 100 % regional wool and are double knotted with ( GHIORDES – Turkish double Knots ). “Yagci Bedir ” rugs have between 8500 to 10000 knots per square meter, ( approximately 10 knots by square inches ). Some of the common sizes of “Yagci Bedir” rugs are “Minder”, “Yastik”, “Çeyrek”, “Seccade”, “Karyola”, and “Taban”.They can be also in different dimensions.

    The techniques in producing the dyes used in the making of “Yagci Bedir” rugs are still one of the best keeped Secrets ( Know-How ). The villagers say that they take the white from “Akdag” ( White mountain ) and the Blue from “Gokdag” ( Sky mountain ) of the region. The colors, been all natural, are obtained by using differents roots. Somes of the roots used in the color mixture are Redroot, Oregano, Poplar, Walnut, Onionskin, Pomegranate etc. Only the coloring experts artisans in the “Yagci Bedir” villages know the Mixture proportions. The color Blue is obtained by mixing “Indigo” with other roots.

    Blending the color blue with artificial colors creates other colors. This doesn’t mean that the rugs are dyed with artificial dyes. By mixing very small amounts of artificial dye with natural dyes, the paint does not wash away in the washing process of the rugs. Color mixing process has been passed down from one generation to the next within the tribe. To keep this secret in the tribe, the marriages are only performed within the tribe’s members.
