The places where our fabrics are coming from.
The history of textile production in Turkey goes back to the Ottoman Empire period. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Turkey is the leader of cotton production and textile fabrics in an advance level. Till today Turkey is the pearl of high quality textiles. Spinners and weavers are learning there handcraft over generations.
Let’s make a small trip to the tradition of weaving. Primary they are using silk, cotton and wool to create an immense beauty with their handcraft. The knowledge of colors, patterns and composition belongs to the spinners and weavers.
One of the oldest weaving tradition is a flat woven “Kilim” Rug. Mostly they have geometric patterns and are made of wool (goat, camel, or horse) or silk. Kilims are generally woven with the slitweave technique.
