This is a carpet that I bought last year. It is one of two that are complete opposites. Here in Turkey, rug making is a family business. I was told that these rugs were made by a 12-15 year old child. I was shocked and really put off by the idea, until my friend told me about the family mentoring their children. It's more like an "apprenticeship". Knowing that these rugs where part of a young persons education in learning a trade, made me want one.
The style is called Kilim and I actually really like them the best. So far I have bought four of varying quality and will treasure them as remembrances from our time in Turkey.
