*Info about Bunyan Carpets*

Carpet making has a rich history in many regions of Turkey, though none is so esteemed as the Bunyan region. Through the skillful crafting of elegant designs, high-quality yarns and delicate patterns that feature stunning symmetrical motifs, Bunyan carpets are easily the more prominent representatives of all Turkish carpets. This fascinating region boasts a dedication to carpet making that is unmatched. Nearly every household has its own loom, and many families make a living from carpets.

Bunyan women are purported to be able to create a carpet of about six square meters, containing an average of 25 knots per square centimeter over a 30 day period. Practicing on looms begins at a very young age in Bunyan. Children learn to construct about ten thousand knots per day so that they will be able to one day contribute financially to their households.

The essential characteristics of Bunyan carpets are their delicate color schemes and uniquely harmonious patterns. Traditional motifs such as geometrical, floral, medallion and birds/animals are commonly used. The warp utilizes cotton yarn and the notoriously hardy Gordian knot, which was historically so difficult to unravel that Alexander the Great had cut one with a sword to prove he was worthy to pass into territory ruled by the ancient Turks.
