Traditional Turkish Handicrafts have created a rich mosaic by combining their own exclusive values with the cultural heritage of various civilizations from the thousands of years of Anatolian History. One of the most significant art branches that introduce the Turks to the world is weaving. Hand-woven carpets in traditional handicrafts have the ability to express Anatolian lifestyle from past to present with rich eloquence in visual expression.
Patterns and motifs used in traditional weaving are permanent, enduring and very rarely changing symbols and codes with their characteristics resisting centuries and geographies. Symbols are like DNA of a cultural structure. Other than being a robust part of Turkish culture, another aspect of these symbols is that they were brought to America by the migration from the Bering Strait which explains the resemblance with some symbols of Native Americans.
