In 1905 three early carpets and several fragments were found in a mosque in Konya. The design of this example is based on a Chinese textile pattern, and can now be found in The Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art, Istanbul. It possibly dates from the fourteenth century, although earlier dates are also given. Apart from these finds and the Pazyryk carpet found in Siberia during the fifth century BC, nothing more is known about carpet history until the thirteenth or fourteenth centuries. Turkey has a richer inheritance of old carpets and a more complete record of its carpet weaving history than any other country. Practically every rug book calls a well-known group of early carpets found in a mosque in Konya, Seljuk court carpets (twelfth or thirteenth century). However, they have the character of cottage-made rugs and it’s likely they were made during the early Ottoman period, sometime after the year 1300.
