Kayseri is an important rug production center in central Anatolia. Generally, Kayseri rugs feature finely-knotted Persian or geometric motifs.

Material Details

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.
