Turkish carpets, also called Anatolia carpets, come from Turkey. The oldest carpets found in Turkey date back to the 13th century and they were discovered in the town of Konya, which has been for years the production centre of carpets in Turkey. The carpets made in the 14th and 17th centuries are comparable to Persian carpets in every way.
Turkish carpets are greatly influences by the Greeks, who once dominated carpet production. These carpets, which are thicker, are made of wool, cotton or silk, and they are always knotted with a Turkish knot, also called a Ghiordes or turkbaff knot. The motifs that are usually seen are inspired from prayer corners with geometric patterns. No humans or animals are present as the Quran forbids it.
