About this item

Vintage Turkish rugs are considered by many to be one of the most beautiful carpets in the world. This elegant Orange rug has a very nice palette of colors such as rust, light blue, navy, beige, gold and orange-pink. 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. 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 the ottoman script and says Uze Ipek, which was the premier workshop in Hereke during the 1980s. Elegant colors and elaborate patterns tempt carpet aficionados and collectors, who rarely can resist their beauty. The vivacity of color and stunning design make this antique Turkish rug a real treat for the eyes. The elegance of the pattern is further highlighted by a beautiful color palette, which complements it perfectly.
