    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 Persia – 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.

    Great condition! Professionally washed and cleaned. No stains, no odor. All sides and ends intact.

  • Tremendous Turkish – 1900s Antique Yagci Bedir Rug – Anatolian Carpet – 3’7″ x 5’6″ ft $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.

  • Marvelous Milas – 1890s Antique Turkish Rug – Tribal Oriental Carpet 3’9″ x 7’3″ ft $899.99

    Size: 3’9″ x 7’3″ ft.

    Milas rugs have been produced since the 19th century and are defined by wide borders and small fields. Milas rugs are finely woven and generally small in size. Probably the most commonly known style of Milas rugs are the small Milas prayer rugs, which commonly display the mihrab design. These prayer rugs may be the most well known Milas rugs, but Milas rugs are also made longer, as runner rugs with geometric shapes and floral patterns.

    In general, being Turkish rugs, Milas rugs are hand-woven with natural wool fibers and dyed with natural plant-based dyes. Each and every Milas rug is unique and is proudly made in the long-standing tradition of Milas people. There is simply no comparison between hand-woven Milas rugs and machine-made rugs, created with synthetic fibers.

    Even though Milas rugs have not been in existence as long as other examples of Turkish rugs, they are still made by families that have been making these rugs for generations. Young women and girls learn the art of weaving at an early age and continue to weave both as a hobby and in order to earn an income, which is easy to do because Milas rugs and Turkish rugs are world renowned for their beauty and quality. Many noted people have admired Turkish rugs, including Marco Polo. The Milas rugs live up to this tradition by displaying the vibrant colours and patterns that make them more than mere rugs and carpets; they are works of art.

    Tulu rugs (pronounced “two-lou”) are wonderful thick shaggy silky modern/tribal rugs! They are hard to classify. They are not really “modern” rugs but they look very modern. In fact, this style of rug is thought to be the predecessor of all knotted pile rugs. But they are not really “tribal” rugs either although they also look very tribal. In any event, they are beautiful! We just picked up a nice batch from our friends in Konya, Turkey. The mohair used in these rugs is absolutely superb: silky and strong and radiant! Only the superior winter coats of the angora sheep are used for this production of rugs. And, these rugs can be custom ordered in any size to fit your home

  • Beautiful Bergama – 1880s Antique Turkish Rug – Tribal Carpet – 3’11” x 5’4″ ft. $1,599.99
    Size: 3’11” x 5’4″ 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.

The history of the Turkish Rug: From the Ottoman Empire to the modern home

A Turkish rug is more than just a piece of fabric; it is a work of art with a rich history. The craft of rug making is believed to date back to the 13th century, when the first Turkish rugs were made for the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum. Since then, rug making has flourished in Turkey, with skilled artisans creating traditional and modern designs.

Today, Turkish rugs are highly sought after by collectors and interior designers alike. While they may vary in size and pattern, all Turkish rugs are united by their exceptional craftsmanship and timeless beauty.

What are the reasons behind the popularity of a Turkish Rug?

There are many reasons behind the popularity of a Turkish Rug. One of the main reasons is that they are made of high-quality materials that can last for years. Turkish kilim rugs are usually made of wool or cotton, making them durable and long-lasting. In addition, the intricate designs and bright colors are what make them so special.

When it comes to choosing a rug for your home, you want something that is not only beautiful but also durable. A Turkish carpet is perfect for those who want a rug that will last for many years and add a touch of elegance and luxury to their home.

The designs of these Turkish kilim rugs are often geometric and feature bold colors and patterns. These rugs can be used as floor coverings, wall hangings, or tablecloths. Turkish rugs offer a great solution if you’re looking for a splash of color or a durable floor covering.

What is the price of a Turkish Rug?

A Turkish rug cost less than a  Persian rug. The price can vary depending on several factors, including the rug’s size, age, and condition. In general, larger rugs will be more expensive than smaller ones, and older rugs will be more expensive than newer ones. On average, a Turkish rug costs between two hundred and seventy-five dollars and four hundred and fifty dollars.

Rugs in good condition will also fetch a higher price than those damaged or worn. Other factors that can influence the price of a Turkish rug include the material it is made from and the intricacy of the design. For example, rugs made from silk or wool will be more expensive than those made from synthetic materials.

Traditional rugs with complex patterns may also be pricier than those with simpler designs. Ultimately, the best way to determine the price of a Turkish rug is to consult with a qualified appraiser.

Why are Turkish Rugs valuable and worth every penny?

Turkish rug makers have been perfecting their craft for centuries, and their skills are passed down from generation to generation. As a result, Turkish rugs are beautiful and extremely well-made. They will last for many years, and their value will only increase with time. If you’re looking for a rug that is both stylish and timeless, a Turkish rug is an excellent choice.
