Turkish rugs are double-knotted. Each piece of yarn is looped twice through the weft, making the rug sturdier and more durable to color interior design and decor in elegant style and serve for centuries. Turkish rugs and carpets can be made of silk, wool, or a wool-and-cotton blend. Dyes for these beautiful floor rugs and kilim textiles are all natural, using everything from rose madder to onion skin to attain wonderful, subtle, organic colors.

The most expensive Turkish rugs and carpets are made of silk threads, one of the strongest natural materials. Silk carpets hold 400 threads per inch. An expert weaver can knot up to 1200 silk threads per inch into a carpet. The silk used for creating these spectacular decorative accessories for interiors comes from farm raised cocoons rather than silkworms. Twisted and dyed, the silk thread get ready for weaving Turkish rugs and carpets.
