Turkish Rugs are a major component of the carpet weaving traditions in the Middle East. They are among the rugs with the most diversity, both with respect to the type of weave, quality and density of knots, variation in designs, and the type of make. It was largely the Turkish people and related groups from Central Asia who introduced the knotted pile carpet to the Islamic world. While most antique Persian rugs are fine and intricate, the antique Turkish rugs are extremely desirable by interior decorators. Since many of the antique rugs from Turkey boast larger scale design patterns that are usually also set against softer colors, they do have a very decorative appeal. The early Turkish rugs are also some of the most collectible rugs in todays market due to their more primitive designs and the fact that not many were produced. The history of Turkish rugs and weavings is as complex as it is ancient. The production of fine rugs and carpets is a practice that dates back millennia. Standing at the crossroads of the great civilizations of the east and west, Turkey has long acted as a natural go-between for European traders seeking to trade in exotic goods, as well as Persian traders seeking to do business with those in the west. Denizli Kilims often have rectangular sizes and feature bold serrated medallions in bright colors. This original kilim pattern based on element named sacbagi (hair band) since hair band, in general, is an ornament used by the bride in the wedding ceremony. Hair bands are made of black cord, wool, doubly twisted silk thread, horse tail as well as beads, seashells, golden thread and corals. The type and form of the hair band and the motifs used to represent it changes according to region and the weaver's mood.
