In 1272, the Venetian merchant traveler and explorer Marco Polowas the first European writer to mention Anatolian carpets, specifically mentioning the "Beautiful rugs of Konya and Karaman".
Most pile rugs from Anatolia utilize the symmetrical ghiordesdouble knot or "Turkish knot". Each knot is made on two warps. With this form of knotting, each end of the pile thread is wrapped all the way around the two warps, pulled down and cut, creating a stronger rug than the much more typical asymmetrical single knotsenneh or "Persian knot".
Rugs have been woven in Anatolia since before the 13th century. Carpets derive their names from the localities in which they are produced, tribal groups they are associated with, as well as from the techniques of their manufacture, the characteristic patterns of their ornamentation, the layout of the design and the intention of their use.
