Konya appears as an important carpet centrel as Seljuk capital. The carpets produced within this period are now exhibited at the Konya Mevlana Museum and the Istanbul Islamic Arts Museum. Konya still maintains this historic tridition. Kazak, Taskale, Ladik, Karapinar, Sultanhani, Eregli, Obruk, Sille and Sarayonu are the centres of carpet making.
Warm colours, as light brown, brick red and beige, are dominant in Konya Kazak carpets. The figures are geometric. Figures such as hands, scorpins and swans are typical.
Konya Taskale rugs are generally in the form of prayer rugs. They have double niches and a central multi-sided figure, colour, dark blue and green.
Both vegetal and geometric figures were used in Konya Karapinar Rugs.
Typical Central Anatolian Carpets with tick naps, thus giving the impression of velvet, are woven at Sultanhani in this region. Genarally light pink, light turquoise and beige colours are used. These carpets have generally been woven for decorative purposes. Flying birds, leaves and stars appear as motifs in the design. They contain 60 -70 thousand knots per square metre. These carpets, woven by Caucasian clans, employ high quality dyes and wools.
