Turkish carpets have been competing with those from other countries for centuries, but because of its silk carpets, Turkey has been at the forefront for a long time.
This is not only due to the unique silk quality, but also because of the number of knots.
This Hereke carpet has the appearance of high-quality, velvety silk.
It uses the silk from the area around Bursa, considered to be of the highest quality.
The Hereke, belonging to the best-known silk carpets worldwide, is a true masterpiece.
It has been knotted for more than a century and many of these masterpieces from the loom once decorated the palaces of Ottoman sultans.
These magnificent items are only manufactured for palaces or ordered as presents for other ruling houses.

Art enthusiasts are well aware that the frame of a picture is just as important as its content
As such, we have decided to choose a matching wooden frame with double-coated
glass that is anti-reflective and prevents any glares or deformations of the picture.
Another advantage of this type of glass is its resistance to sunlight, therefore offering protection against
The wide passe-partout complements, emphasises and reinforces the richness and beauty of the Hereke carpet.
The back of the frame allows hanging the picture up securely.
The Hereke was imported to the EU in 1978.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.I think it would be better to tell if the carpet is here and there repeared. Also, I do not agree with the given 50's-60's time line; I did not believe it, when I made my offer. Nice heriz though.
