Tied with the symmetrical Turkish knot – also referred to as the Ghiordes knot or Turkbaff – thick Turkish or Anatolian carpets are made with wool, cotton and silk. The oldest examples were woven in the city of Konya, once the centre for Turkish carpet production – in the 13th century and were heavily influenced by the Greeks, who dominated the industry. Those made later in the 16th and 17th century are compatible with Persian carpets. Prayer niches are the dominant pattern and motifs are largely geometrical. Prohibited by the Quran, no humans or animals appear in these rugs.
