Demirci is one of the most well known handmade carpet production centers in Turkey with a distinctive coarse knot that is woven on a cotton foundation, depicting simple Persian motifs.
Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply. A cotton foundation is also a popular choice, used to tie the wool knots onto. Cotton is rigid and strong, providing a firm foundation that stands the test of time.
