Yagcibedir Turkish rug carpet
yagcibedir carpets are produced in the mountanious areas of the Aegean regions, in the nomad inhabited villages of Mazilar, Islamlar, Karakeceli, Yenikoy, Karaboga and Kocaoba (the oba ending means "nomad tent"). According to legend Yagcibedir was a butter seller from Kayseri who made excellent quality carpets to supplement his income. He shared his skills with the people of the villages he visited, so when they started to produce, they named their carpets after him. The wrap, weft and knots are made of pure lambswool, and the pile is clipped short to allow the pattern to be clearly seen. The dominant colours are dark indigo blue and rich madder red, sometimes with the inclusion of cream, brown, softer shades of red and pinks. As the carpets age they become more and more lovely, as dark reds fade to a beautiful softred-brown.
