Konya Rugs – The tradition of carpet weaving in Konya goes all the way back to the 13th century and was also the former capital of the Seljuk Empire. Konya is a producer of rugs woven with lustrous pure wool that comes from the surrounding rural areas including the famous Ladik carpets. Konya rugs are commonly woven with the geometric motif “Memling Gul” and are combined with magnificent color combinations. Konya rugs are highly sought after by collectors and are the Turkish counterparts to Caucasian Kazaks.
