About

The manufacturing of these masterpieces luxury rugs began late the 19th century. This carpet was woven in Asian Anatolia, Turkey in the historic city of Hereke. The manufacturing of these masterpieces luxury rugs began early the 20th century. Oriental rugs from Turkey are known for their exquisite artistry with the pile of wool or silk. These carpets and rugs are often manufactured with high knot density and have varied patterns, borrowed from different areas in Anatolia. It is also familiar with handmade rugs produced entirely of silk, Silk-Ghom. Gardens, medallions or figural Oriental carpets with plant and animal motifs are common. Today, some wool rugs have been manufactured in another country, and these patterned rugs also carry the name Herekeh because they use just Hereke pattern with silk pile but are recognizable in appearance. This ivory rug has a red border and an all over illustrated animals, birds and floral rug design. These natural rugs look beautiful and are ideal for living room rugs and bedroom rugs. In the mid-19th century, Sultan Abdul Majid proclaimed Hereke to be the royal weaving village. The silk rugs were woven there were considered the finest in the world. All examples used select Borsa silk which is the finest quality carpet silk. The Sultan required that all of the silk rugs woven in Hereke had to be signed with the name Hereke. These carpets were regularly woven for the aristocracy in Europe, Asia, and The Middle East. The design of this rug is unique because it is an interpretation of the famous 17th-century Mughal carpet from India. The Mughal carpet was exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum and was illustrated in the book called Flowers Under Foot, published by the Museum. The carpet has 1200 knots per square inch, and the entire field is woven of silver/metallic thread. The signature (see detail photos) is written in Ottoman script and says Uze Ipek, which was the premier workshops in Hereke during the 1980s.
