The tradition of carpet weaving in Central Anatolia has exercised quite considerable influence upon the neighboring areas of eastern and western Anatolia. This was occasioned by Seljuk Empire, whose illustrious capital was Konya. Carpet weaving represents a traditional art, dating back to pre-Islamic times. During its long history, the art and craft of the woven carpet has integrated different cultural traditions. Within the group of oriental carpets, the Turkish carpet is distinguished by particular characteristics of dyes and colors, designs, textures and techniques. Usually made of wool and cotton, Turkish carpets are tied with the "Turkish", or symmetrical knot.
