The carpet in the traditional art of Turks has a distinguished place in our art history. The knotted carpet technique that gives the character in the weaving art was introduced in Central Asia for the first time where the Turks used to live, continued development by the Turks and introduced to the Islamic World yet again by the Turks. Knotted carpets have a very long history. The presence of this technique is based on a practical desire of a tribe; creating a thicker and warmer floor. The findings show that the first use of knotted carpet was in Central Asia. The Pazarık Carpet is the oldest known knotted carpet which was weaved by Huns BC III.-II and found in a tomb covered by ice in Pazarık under the foot hills of Altay Mountains in Central Asia. 

Gördes knot has been used in the woven fabrics obtained from Obruk Village of Bor District and Ortaköy town of Niğde Province, Avanos town of Nevşehir Province, and Taşpınar town of Aksaray Province. The warp, weft, loop yarn are derived from their of sheep's wool. Some synthetic and some natural dyes are used to color the ropes. Paintings are being made by women under primitive conditions.

Because Turkish carpets were highly esteemed, possession of a Turkish carpet was regarded as a status symbol. Hans Holbein, Lorenzo Lotto, Carlo Crivelli, Hans Memling, and Gentile Bellini are some of the painters who used Turkish carpets in their paintings.
