Rug Style

Turkish (Anatoli)

The distinguishing characteristic of these old Turkish rugs are the bright color effect- in general brighter than the Persian rugs- and the employment of much canary, lavender, and mauve, with the reds and light blue. Turkish rugs use rectangular lines and a great massing of colors. Animal or human motifs were never used because it was against the cultural practices at the time. A great number of Turkish rugs were also in Prayer designs as well.
