Antique Konya Rugs Guide

In the canon of Antique Konya Rugs we see a diversity of design from simple village peasant rugs to much more formal rugs. Connoisseurs  have come to prize the wide range of Konya rugs with the smple village rugs  receiving as much interest as the far more formal pieces.

The Konya region not only predates  modern Turkey as a weaving center but it easily predates  the Ottoman Empire as a weaving center.  Konya was a Seljuk state and a vassal of the Mamluk Sultans of Egypt for far longer than it has been a part of Turkey and figured prominently  in the Mamluk Mongol wars that to a great extent defines large parts of our world today.

The Seljuk Turks were Turkmen and are closely related to the Ersari tribe of Central Asia. Once they moved into Central Anatolia they brought a distinctly Turkmen influence into the Greeks and Armenians of the region.  Konya rugs are a fusion of Turkman as well as the indigenouus Christian.

Seljuk Ersari/Azari Turkmen rugs

Konya is the center of Turkey's greatest carpet regions. Examples of Seljuk rugs have been identified from Konya dating to the 13th and 14th centuries. The Seljuk were the Elite clan of the Ersari/Azari Turkmen confederation who moved to Turkey just ahead of the Mongol invasion in the 11th century.

Iconium reached it's peak as a Christian city in the third century.
