More about the provenance Hereke, ca. 1960 | Turkey

Hereke is located in North West Turkey at the Gulf of Izmit at the Marmara Sea approx. 60 km to Istanbul. 1844 a manufactory of cloths has been established here by Sultan Abd-ul Mejid. 1890 the then Sultan Abd-ul Hamid has brought master carpet weavers from Sivas, Manisa and Goerdes and expanded the manufacture to carpet making in which high quality and very fine rugs have been made. It used to be (and still is) mostly variations of Persian, French (in the style of Louis XV and Louis XVI of Savonnerie) and elegant Turkish designs. The partly gold and silver thread, the relief structure, and the very fine silk rugs often with a metallic shine are all characteristic for Hereke rugs. The wool used for the rugs is of very high quality, almost with no exception. Old Hereke rugs achieve very high prices in today's markets. Often (but not always) they are signed by the master weaver. The quality and beauty of Hereke rugs is literally legendary.

This Oriental carpet has a so called "garden design" or as in Persian "Kheshti". The design of Oriental "garden rugs" represents sophisticated garden layouts from a bird's eye view. The oldest garden rugs date back to the 16th century. The legendary rug "Spring of Khosrow" of Khosrow the Sassanide king served as a template. The rugs are divided into fields which are separated by water ditches. The ditches in which often fish and ducks are swimming are flanked by bushes and flowers. Altogether garden rugs are an expression of the special Oriental love of floral beauty which peaked in fantastically laid out gardens.
