The first examples consisting of warp and weft were textile products which resembled flat weave kilims.。 Then rugs were created by forming knots to make a pile. According to scientist, rug weaving must have originated in the dry steppe regions。 where the nomadic tribes lived. Central Asia was a suitable location for the first rug-weaving center because of the availability of land 。for herding sheep and because of the climate of the region.。Rugs have been used in the home as floor coverings, blankets, tablecloths and decorations. They acquire value as they are used, whereas 。most objects decrease in value over time.。The oldest example known in the history of hand-make rugs is the one which is exhibited in the St. Petersburg Hermitage Museum in Russia. 。This fantastic Altai rug was discovered by the Russian archaeologist Sergei Rudenko in the year 1949 and is known as the "Pazirik Rug",。 woven around the 3rd century B.C. The majority of experts believe that there is a link between ancient Turkish culture and this particular rug;。 they also believe that the other items found in the Pazirik Tumulus have some connection to Turkish civilization.。Nomadic rugRug weaving in Anatolia first began with the arrival of the Turkish tribes from Central Asia, who settled in this region. 。Therefore, Anatolian rugs form a branch of ethnic Turkish rugs. Some of the oldest examples known are the eighteen surviving pieces 。woven by the Selcuk Turks in the 13th century. The motifs in these pieces represented in stylized floral and geometrical patterns 。in several basic colors and were woven in Sivas, Kayseri and Konya.。The art of rug weaving which began with the Selcuks continued with the Ottoman Turks. After the Selcuk Turks and before the Ottomans, 。during the transition period in the 14th century, animal figures began to appear on the rugs. Although very few of these exist today,。 they can be seen in the paintings of famous Italian, French and Dutch painters. Due to the animal figures on these rugs, they are called as "Rugs with Animals".。By the 15th century there was a wider variety of animal motifs on the rugs. A new group of rugs with a combination of animal motifs。 and geometrical patterns appeared around this time. These rugs were called "Holbein Rugs" since they appear in paintings by the。 German artist Hans Holbein. As there are no surviving examples of these rugs today, all research is carried out from the paintings. 。The works of artists such as Lotto, Memling, Carlo Crivelli, Rafaellino de Gardo, B.Van Orley, Carpaccio, Jaume Huguet were also important sources of research.。 In this century, Bergama and Usak became important weaving centers in western Anatolia.。The 16th century was the beginning of the second successful period of Anatolian rug-weaving. The rugs from this period are called 。"Classical Ottoman Rugs". The reason these rugs are called "Palace rugs" is that the design and colors would have been determined 。by the palace artists and then sent to the weaving centers. this method was similar to that used in the ceramic tile production of that period.。The designs, which consisted of twisting branches, leaves and flowers such as tulips, carnations and hyacinths, are woven in a naturalistic style 。and establish the basic composition of the rug. This style was continued in other regions and can be seen in Turkish rugs today.。In the 16th, 17th and 18th century, Gördes, Kula, Milas, Ladik, Mucur, Kirsehir, Bandirma and Canakkale gained importance as rug-weaving。 centers, along with Usak and Bergama. The rugs woven in some of these areas are known as "Transylvanian Rugs" because they were found 。in churches in Transylvania.。In the beginning of the 19th and 20th centuries, the rugs woven in Hereke (nearby Istanbul) gained worldwide recognition. These rugs。 were originally woven only for the Sultans of the Ottoman Empire. The finest silk rugs in the world are still being woven in Hereke today.。We can identify the rugs woven in different regions as town or village rugs. The rugs woven in the agricultural areas of Anatolia owe。 their origins to the settlers or nomadic cultures. In Europe, these rugs (which are woven with wool on wool) are generally called 。"Anatolian Rugs" In towns where people have settled permanently, the rugs are woven with a wool on cotton combination.。Today in Turkey there are regions which keep this wonderful tradition alive; such rugs are woven in Konya, Kayseri, Sivas, Hereke,。 Yagcioglu, Kula, Dösemealti, Taspinar, Isparta, Milas, Bergama, Canakkale, Kars, Usak, Gordes, Fethiye and Yahyali.。The Craft of Weaving Rugs。A rug is a handicraft which consist of two parts; the skeleton of the rug, which is formed by vertical and horizontal threads called 。"warps" and "wefts" and the part which resembles a picture and is like velvet, which is called the "pile" of the rug, made by knotting 。different colors of thread. In order to form motifs, there are two knotting techniques:。Turkish double knotSymmetrical knotting, double or Turkish knotting. Each knot is made on two warps. In this form of knotting, each end 。of the pile thread is wrapped all the way around the two warps, pulled down and cut.。Non-symmetrical or single (Persian) knotting. While one end of the thread is wrapped all the way around the warp, the other end goes 。just beside the other warp. Then both ends are pulled down and cut.。Persian single knotThe steps for weaving a carpet are written below:。The weaving is started from the bottom of the loom. First the kilim part (flat woven part) is woven at the lower edge.。The weaver then takes a piece of wool which corresponds with the pattern and forms a knot on two warps.。Then she cuts the surplus wool with a knife.。After one row of knotting is completed, she then passes a weft thread in between the front and back warps. The weft threads are used to strengthen 。the weaves of the carpet.。Then she will take the "kirkit" (a heavy comb like tool) and vigorously beat down the row of knots and weft, in order to obtain the desired 。tightness and to make the knots and weft compact.。Following this step, with a pair of adjustable scissors she cuts the surplus colored threads to obtain a uniform level of pile thickness.。This process is continued until the carpet is complete.。Dyes。There are two types of dyes which are used to dye wool for weaving: vegetable dyes and chemical dyes. Rugs which are made using natural。 dyes are the most preferred. The natural dyes are obtained from three sources: plants; animals; and minerals. Plant sources are used 。most widely in rug production. Some of the examples of colors obtained from plants and animal sources are: red (RUBIA TINTORIA); yellow 。(GENISTA TINTORIA); navy blue (ISOTIS TINCTORIA and INDIGO FERETINTORIA); gray and black (OVER LUS); brown (JUNGLAND REGIA); and red 。(DACHYLOPIUS COCUS). Dyeing threads by using sources from nature is an art which has been practiced since ancient times. Anatolia has a 。large variety of plants available for dyeing purposes and this is where the craft of dyeing has been improved throughout centuries of experience.。 Plants gathered from natural sources are still widely used today.。Motifs。There are many different types of motifs and emblems which can be seen on the rugs. These are classified into two groups:。Geometrical or Stylized Motifs。Naturalistic and Floral Designs。The motif on the rugs represent Anatolia and Central Asia and their civilizations. These compositions, motifs, and designs represent 。the origins and culture of a society; therefore, a rug can be considered a cultural item. Each of the designs is meaningful, not an 。accidental drawing. To understand the meaning of every motif would be a very long and tiring process, as there are so many of them 。which have accumulated throughout the centuries. The motifs on the rugs represent Anatolia, Central Asia and their civilizations. 。Some of the most common motifs on rugs are the TREE OF LIFE symbolizing long life and re-birth; the HORNS OF ANIMALS which symbolize power; 。HANDS ON HIPS symbolizing female fertility and the mother of God; and the HANGING CANDLE symbolizing the holy (eternal) light.。Rug Motifs, Symbols & Meaning。There are so many different symbols and motifs found in Rugs and Kilims across the world, most of which date back hundreds of years 。but are still being used by carpet weavers today. We thought it might be interesting to have a reference to these symbols together with their 。meanings so you can identify some of the motifs found in your own rugs. 。BROWSE OUR RUGS NOW AND SEE THE SYMBOLS IN SOME OF THEM。ELIBELINDE - Hands on Hips。A stylised female figure derived from the Anatolian mother goddess figurines and used as a symbol of motherhood and fertility.。 。 。KOÇBOYNUZU - Ram's Horn。A crescent-shaped symbol of fertility, heroism, power and masculinity。BEREKET - Fertility。A kilim motif composed of elibelinde and koçboynuzu motifs arranged to include various protective symbols. 。Stylised representations of multi-grained plants such as wheat, barley, pomegranate, poppy, melon, figs, grapes and mulberry are also used to。 indicate fertility.。BROWSE OUR RUGS NOW AND SEE THE SYMBOLS IN SOME OF THEM。 。 。INSAN - Human Figure。A stylised representation used to commemorate a person, to express the hope for having a child, or to imply the expectation of a baby.。 。 。SAÇBAĞI - Hair Band。A rug motif, evolved as a symbolic representation of the head ornament used by the bride in the wedding ceremonies, which indicates the desire。 to get married.。 。 。KÜPE - Earring。A kilim rug motif resembling the shape of an earring, an indispensable wedding present, used to express the desire for marriage.。BROWSE OUR RUGS NOW AND SEE THE SYMBOLS IN SOME OF THEM。 。 。BUKAĞI - Fetter。A cuff-shaped motif symbolising the continuity of the family union, the devotion of lovers and the hope that they should always stay together.。 。 。SANDIKLI - Chest。A motif which symbolises the trousseau chest of a young woman and stands for the desire to get married and having a child. 。 In some cases the motif symbolises death and a coffin.。BROWSE OUR RUGS NOW AND SEE THE SYMBOLS IN SOME OF THEM。 。 。AŞK VE BIRLEŞIM - Love and Unison。A rug motif inherited from the Far East, generally known by the name of Ying-Yang and used to indicate the harmony between a man and a woman。 。 。YILDIZ - Star。A rug motif used to express happiness and fertility, based on the fact that the size pointed star, generally known as the Soloman's Seal,。 is used to symbolise the womb of the mother goddess figurines.

The following advice and information are basic general 。instructions that the average carpet owner may exercise in the care and cleaning of Turkish and Oriental Carpets. 。The best recommendation is regular brushing with an old fashioned hand broom with natural bristles or the use of a vacuum cleaner.。 Remember that it is equally important to brush the underlay of the carpet and the floor beneath. Utilizing a vacuum cleaner will 。never damage the carpet if only cleaning is made by the nozzle attachment other than the revolving brush attachment.。WASHING OR CLEANING。 How often a carpet to be cleaned, obviously depends on the amount of traffic and the type of carpet. Such cleaning may vary from every six。 months to once every two years. A carpet with a light colored pattern may be sent out to be cleaned more often, but it may be less obvious if 。the carpet is dark and intricately patterned. The first indication that the carpet needs cleaning will be from the feel of the pile, which may。 feel course and harsh to the touch instead of velvety and smooth as it should be.。 Another useful test is to fold up one corner and tap the back of the carpet over the palm of the hand. If a fine powder of dust, grit and。 loose fibers fall into your hand it is certainly the time to clean the carpet.。HAND CLEANING AT HOME。 You may hesitate at the idea of cleaning your carpet at home. Although it is a time consuming process requiring care and patience,。 it is actually a simple job which can be successfully carried out by any carpet owner who follows these simple instructions. 。Hand cleaning has several rewards, apart from the obvious benefit of saving money. It will give personal satisfaction to see。 every fiber getting fresh and reviewed. It will also give you a chance to have a closer relationship with your carpet as every。 previously unnoticed detail of color and motif comes into view with the close attention that hand cleaning requires. Nearly all types of carpets can be。 cleaned at home with the exception of antiques, carpets in need of repair and fine silk carpets. These should receive the attention of a personal 。carpet repair specialist.。PREPERATION FOR WASHING。 Preparation is as important as the washing process itself. First of all, test the carpet for color fastness by rubbing a brightly colored area。 gently with damp white cloth. Then examine it the carpet thoroughly to make sure it is not in need of repair. Since the carpet becomes slightly 。fragile when it is wet, it is advisable to carry out most repairs before washing. Only repiling is done more successfully after washing, since。 the color can be matched more accurately. Before washing, brush and beat the carpet thoroughly to remove as much loose dust as possible,。 because dust and dirt is more damaging when wet rather than dry. Finally find a flat, clean hard surface on which to clean the carpet more easily.。EQUIPMENT。 Most of the necessary equipment can be found already at home. A soft brush with natural bristles about one inch long。 (the type used for grooming horses is ideal), white natural vinegar, carpet shampoo (or any kind of natural soap), especially 。Ivory soap is recommendable) and a bucket of lukewarm water are all that is needed.。Caution:Avoid using detergents and soaps containing strong chemicals with high P.H. values since inorganic substances may harm organic wool fibers.。METHOD。 Lay the carpet with the pile up on a hard flat surface. Dip the brush into the liquid (mixture of soap, vinegar and lukewarm water) and apply。 it in gentle even vertical strokes. Vigorously brushing or scrubbing will not clean thoroughly and is likely to damage the carpet in its wet vulnerable state.。 Start in one corner, brushing up and down, against the pile with even overlapping movements. Once the carpet is brushed lengthwise, than brush horizontally,。 or from side to side across the pile, the same gentle overlapping strokes is best. The Pile should be thoroughly clean by now. Finally, brush gently in the 。direction of the pile as the carpet dries, so that the pile is running in the right direction.。 Try to apply the cleaning solution sparingly, so that the foundation does not become wet. It is very difficult to dry a carpet thoroughly, since it is。firmly encased in the million of tight little knots. If the carpet is relayed on the floor while it is still damp, the carpet will probably start to rot and 。in a few months the base will become extremely brittle.。 During the entire cleaning process handle the carpet as carefully as possible, since while it is wet, it is extremely fragile, so it is very easy to cause 。damage.。DRYING。 Small carpets can be pegged by the kilim and on a clothes line. Large ones are more easily dried on a hard clean surface like concrete of paving stones.。 Do not dry on a lawn, since the base will absorb moisture of the grass. If the weather is not cooperating for drying it outside than 。let the carpet dry flat in a room with warm air current heating system. While it dries don?t walk on it and don?t place anything on it. The warp,。 left and the pile of a completely dried carpet should feel soft and pliable.。 Remove the dry dirt and shampoo powder by gently brushing with a soft brush or by using the vacuum cleaner.。THINGS TO AVOID。 Washing machines and dryers must never be used for any delicate hand made item. Vibration, water temperature and harsh detergents will cause。 irreparable damage.。 It may even reduce the carpet to shreds. Many people must have seen or heard Eastern weavers washing the carpets in streams and rivers. 。This has lead many owners to wrongly believe that a complete soaking is good. This process in fact, is only used for brand new carpets. 。They are washed very quickly laid out to dry immediately in the baking sun.。 Some firms that advertise themselves as expert carpet cleaners use electric rotary brushes. These machines were designed for use on 。machine made carpet and should only be used on such items. Again dry cleaners advertise themselves as carpet cleaners.。 These services may be useful for machine made carpets, but an Oriental hand made masterpiece 。should never be subjected to the strong chemicals that these firms use. The damage may become apparent only after several months and it may be irreparable.。DEALING WITH SPILLS AND STAINS。 Water and dampness are the greatest danger to an Oriental carpet. Water spills are perhaps the most common accident at home. When this occurs, 。necessary steps should be immediately taken. Using a white cloth with no coloring, try to absorb as much of the spilled water as possible.。 Place some material underneath the carpet and never try to wring it out. A hair dryer, set a moderate heat, is probably the best implement for drying.。 Dry the carpet thoroughly from both sides. The pile may be a little when dry. Gentle ease it back into shape with your fingers. On the other hand, 。in a busy household, a variety of substances may be accidently spilled on a rug. Excluding the silk and antique carpets most of these accidents can。 be tackled at home. The first step with any substance is the same as with water. Absorb as much as the spill as possible with a clean, white dry cloth.。 This simple absorption method, when carried out as quickly as possible, is the greatest contribution to stain prevention. In dealing with every type of stain,。 work from top of the stain downward, never from the middle outwards, as this may cause the stain to spread. Never use hot water or bleach to help remove 。the stain, and always remember that soft scrubbing is much more effective than a harsh one.。Why Buy A Wool Rug?。When choosing a rug to complete a room, we feel it’s important to go beyond the aesthetics and consider the material it is made of.。While rugs made from synthetic fabrics may look similar to wool versions, when you scratch beneath the surface, 。it’s clear that they don’t have the same advantages. Everyone knows that wool is soft underfoot, 。and keeps a room insulated from heat and sound, but there are a number of other practical, health, environmental, and ethical benefits,。that may make you consider choosing a wool rug for your home. 。Fire Resistant。Due to its high protein and moisture content wool doesn’t carry a flame,。so it more likely to just smolder and extinguish itself when it comes into contact with fire.。Its naturally fire retardant properties are the reason it’s chosen by casinos, airlines, 。and even firefighters. Not only this, but it also produces lower smoke emissions。so that it won’t emit such dangerous levels of toxic fumes such as carbon monoxide.。Stain Resistant and Easier to Clean。It’s also much easier to clean a wool rug, compared to a synthetic alternative, 。because the natural coating of light wax on each fibre makes it much more stain resistant than 。the best synthetic fibers. And they hide dirt well. In fact wool rugs can contain a pound of。 dry soil per square yard before they begin to look dirty. 。Yet wool also has the ability to release dry soil easily so wool rugs are easy to keep clean through regular brushing or vacuuming.。Wool is also highly water resistant. Untreated wool still contains naturally fatty lanolin that makes 。wool almost waterproof. Wool fibers are also very absorbent meaning that they can soak up about 20% of their。own weight before water starts to leak through. This means that spillages onto wool rugs can easily be wiped off.。Healthy。Dust mites are tiny creatures that can live in soft furnishings. Dust mite allergy is a common condition,。 and is associated with asthma, eczema and perennial allergic rhinitis. But they don’t like wool. 。Research performed by the German Applied and Experimental Allergy Research Association (GAF) showed。that wool carpets performed best in resisting dust mite infestation. Wool rugs also act as a natural air filter,。trapping allergens such as dust and pollen. Even if you don’t suffer from dust mite allergy or asthma, 。there is a health incentive to choosing a wool rug for your home. Hand-woven wool rugs do not。emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds) unlike rugs made of synthetic fibers or tufted rugs with synthetic backings.。The carbon footprint of the textile industry is alarmingly large. Mass production of synthetic products results 。in millions of metric tons of coal being burned and trillions of liters of water being used. In the US, 。textiles are the 5th largest contributor of carbon dioxide emissions and in the rest of the world it is even worse. 。Yet the processing of wool has a much smaller environmental impact even when compared to other natural or man-made fibers.。In fact the amount of energy used to produce wool is about an eighth of that used to produce nylon.。It is also the one the few carpet fibers that is made without petroleum—a limited, non-biodegradable resource.。Not only that but wool is considered to be a ‘long life fibre’ meaning that it retains its properties for many years.。When it reaches the end of its long life, it biodegrades in soil without causing any damage to the environment.。Because it is made from amino acids, when it biodegrades, it actually releases essential plant nutrients such as nitrogen,。potassium, and phosphorous back into the soil. Old carpets can also be recycled, for example in our over-dyed。and patchwork carpets that breathe a new life into tired rugs, or by unravelling the carpets and re-using the wool for new products.。Helps Conserve Energy。Wool carpets and rugs are also energy efficient. Wool fibers have a unique breathable ability。which keeps your home warmer and drier in winter, while keeping it cooler and drier in summer.。A few well placed rugs can, therefore, help to reduce energy bills.。By buying a wool rug or carpet you are also helping to support local farmers throughout the world,。and encouraging them to rear animals for wool rather than meat. Wool regrows naturally every year,。
