The most common materials used for the pile are wool, silk and cotton. Nomadic and village weavers sometimes also use goat- and camel-hair. Traditionally, spinning is done by hand. Several strands of yarn are then plied together so that the resulting yarn is strong enough to be used for weaving. Is the most frequently used pile material in a Turkish rug because it is soft, durable, easy to work with and not too expensive.
It is less susceptible to dirt than cotton, does not react electrostatically, and insulates against both heat and cold. This combination of characteristics is not found in other natural fibers. Wool comes from the coats of sheep. Natural wool comes in colors of white, brown, fawn, yellow and gray, which are sometimes used directly without going through a dyeing process.Sheep's wool also takes dyes well. Traditionally, wool used for Turkish carpets is spun by hand. Before the yarn can be used for weaving, several strands have to be twisted together for additional strength. Is used primarily in the foundation, the warps and wefts of rugs.
Cotton is stronger than wool, and, when used for the foundation, makes a carpet lie flat on the ground, as it is not as easily distorted as woolen strings. Some weavers, such as Turkomans, also use cotton for weaving small white details into the rug in order to create contrast. Traditional dyes used for Anatolian carpets are obtained from plants, insects and minerals.Star Ushak carpets were woven in large formats. They are characterized by large dark blue star shaped primary medallions in infinite repeat on a red ground field containing a secondary floral scroll. Women learn their weaving skills at an early age, taking months or even years to complete the pile rugs and flat woven kilims that were created for their use in daily life. As is true in most weaving cultures, traditionally it is women and girls who are both artisan and weaver. Rug weaving represents a traditional craft dating back to prehistoric times. Within the group of oriental carpets, the Anatolian rug is distinguished by particular characteristics of its dyes and colours, The earliest surviving examples of Anatolian rugs known today date from the thirteenth century. Distinct types of rugs have been woven ever since in court manufactures and provincial workshops. Anatolian rugs are most often tied with symmetrical knots. Green: Spring, vitality, hope, life.
Green is also considered a holy color and used sparingly. Black was not commonly used as a domina. The weaving of Turkish rugs is a traditional craft that young girls have taken up for centuries, taught by their mothers.Throughout Turkey, girls begin weaving in order to prepare goods for a traditional dowry and trousseau. Considering that Turkish rugs last more than a lifetime, these sales offices also accept and sell used rugs, which are noted as such. On a recent visit to one, we also saw beautiful rugs that had been woven by nomadic women. Regardless of its vintage and its condition, a fine Turkish rug is valuable and its worth may increase over time. Carpets reflect the culture of a people and with their attractive colors and designs convey artistic messages to people of other cultures, thus become a universal means of discourse.
When you observe their surface lines and delineate the motifs in their repetitious rhythm, symmetrical harmony, dominance and hierarchy, balance and unity, you will appreciate why carpet weaving is one of the most beautiful artistic activities. The Turkish carpet weaving underwent changes in designs, but the main characteristics remained intact. In the earlier examples, geometrical forms like stars, squares, hexagons and octagons were dominant; roses or roselike forms and other floral patterns constituted the motifs.Commonly known Turkish Rug dimensions: Handcrafted Turkish rugs vary in size.
