Large size semi antique Oriental Turkish Kayseri carpet with a raspberry coloured centre and measuring approximately 206x300cm (6.9 x 9.10ft) - this piece has a stunning complex floral design and the most beautiful wool quality - we love the rich raspberry colours and stunning hints of natural blues in the borders.
Kayseri is in Central Anatolia and rugs and carpets from here are generally finely woven with an all over floral Persian style design against a cream or cherry raspberry coloured background. The weaving of these hand knotted rugs stopped a long time ago and we only now find semi antique pieces. These handmade rugs do not have a high pile, they are finely woven and quite flat giving a lovely worn antique look and feel. These large rugs are always wool pile with cotton warp/wefts. Kayseri is renowned for its major trade links as it is situated on the old the silk road - it has a fantastic bazaar and caravanserai where people have traded since 1500AD. It was famous for its carpet and kilim weaving in the past, it is still however famous for it spicy dried cured beef “pastirma” and also the tasty “mantı” which is a meat filled dumpling!
