Turkish loom

Whilst on holiday with a friend in Turkey, we took the opportunity to visit the one place thats left trying to keep the dying trade of hand made turkish carpet alive. Although these traditional carpets aren't something that I am normally to keen on, seeing the different ranges that are available and the quality of the carpets them selves, stood out to my attention. It took one highly skilled worker any where between 3 to 18 months to hand make a single carpet depending on the size. They all held a certain quality that was to those made by machines. There were many tradition patterns yet they had brought out a Kandinsky range that appealed to the more contemporary market.
