of Artwork
Carpets are a short and dense pile, flat or patterned thick mat that is woven using textile material and generally functions as a floor covering.
The carpet is woven with a separate pattern thread on the warp threads, the knot is knotted into different shapes, and a few rows of weft threads are passed and compressed so that they have a pile face with the same height or locally embossed pile. They are traditionally produced by handweaving methods and in modern days by hand or machine weaving or by tufting. While hand-made carpets exhibit a production structure based on motifs developed through labor-intensive work and historical-cultural heritage, machine-made carpets have a production structure that can be categorized as capital-intensive but also as labor-intensive and technical textiles.

An Artwork's History
Those who claim that the first carpet weaving was done by the Turks base this on the fact that the oldest known carpet in the world (the Pazyryk carpet) was woven with a Turkish double knot. They state that the history of Turkish carpet weaving goes back 2500 years and that the Turks moved the carpet from Central Asia to Anatolia. Consequently, it is said that historically hand carpeting is one of the crafts of the Turks. We can trace the tradition of Turkish carpet weaving with its corresponding characteristics from Anatolia to the Mongols. The Turks took their ancestral profession of carpet weaving using the oldest woven raw materials from their homelands, such as wool, linen, silk, and cotton and took this art to the highest level with the Seljuks in Anatolia.
No matter where the Turks went in the world their carpet weaving technique, which is one of the elements of their culture, was transferred from mother to daughter like a continuously flowing river.
Artworks: Handmade Carpets
The art of weaving, which concerns a wide geographical zone from the Balkans to China, was probably born in Anatolia, the cradle of multiple civilizations.
Turkish carpets and kilims, originating from this rich past, have an important place in the world and have always been at the foreground of carpet literature. With their rich motifs, each area of Türkiye has a specific carpet-weaving culture. These rugs, with their combinations of colors and motifs, were a source of inspiration for many famous western painters. Silk and wool carpets designed by the Nakkas (designers of the Ottoman palace) were the finest and most famous rugs in the world. Handmade carpets and kilims are generally produced by weavers in Anatolia, but Istanbul is the hub of the carpet trade. As Türkiye’s biggest city with great potential for work, most of the exports of handmade products are carried out from Istanbul. Also, Gaziantep has a great potential for machine-made carpet. As the world export market was 2,9 billion dollars, 53% of it exported from Gaziantep, in 2019.

National Advantages
Turkish carpets attract attention with their own special features. Turkish hand rugs and rugs come to the fore with their worldwide recognition and brand value.For example, silk handmade carpets woven in Türkiye have the best quality and are the most well-known silk carpets in the world. In addition, Turkish hand rugs and rugs are woven based on each region's own culture and each region has its own unique patterns and colors. The motifs in Turkish carpets are symbolic of the event or object that the weaver intended to convey. As in other crafts, motifs function as expressions of emotions with symbols.

For example, the Pazyryk carpet, which is considered to be the oldest carpet in the world, is a reflection of the cultural elements of the Asian nomadic society. The section representing the happy life in the Pazyryk carpet was placed in the center of the carpet, and issues representing the religious beliefs of those people were distributed in reverse motions on the curbs.

FACTS
Characteristics of Weaved Artworks

The characteristics of carpets are different from each other. Machine-made carpet has the pile bonded on a thick floor and as a result, it consists of pile warps in the warp direction. While the knot is put on the warp with a separate thread in the hand-made carpet, the pile surface in the machine carpet is formed by the U warp of the pile warp with the wefts. Tuft carpet is formed by the weaving of tuft threads on a previously woven floor texture. Türkiye is a unique country that has applied all these methods in the most professional way for centuries.
