Turkish Hereke Rugs
Hereke carpets were initially supplied to the Ottoman court in the nineteenth century. The factories which produced the rugs were set up in the 1860s. Hereke rugs are extremely knotted with designs inspired by Persian pieces from the sixteenth century. The Hereke factory had some early challenges, including a fire, but eventually perfected the art of producing lavishly woven carpets. When first experienced in the west, they were mistaken for sixteenth century pieces. Hereke carpets reached a wider public after the fall of the Ottoman empire in 1918, and the factory now produces some of the finest weavings available.
