Overview

Bazaar 54 has been established in 1987 and has thousands of visitors from all around the World to witness the authentic turkish designed hand knotted rugs while they are being woven belong to every single region of Turkey. For centuries, carpets have been created as valuable pieces of decoration for the homes of the nomadic Turks. Kilim (a flat-woven carpet), the oldest of which is thought to have emerged in Çatalhöyük in 7000 BC, located in the middle of the Anatolian region. However, hali (knotted rugs), are believed to have been introduced by Turkic tribes sometime during the 8th or 9th century, and to have made their way to Anatolia during the 12th century. Anatolian women used high-quality natural materials like wool and silk, and illustrated the daily life of the period with regional motifs that came to life through their creativity. This centuries-long experience, transferred between generations, is what adds great value to a handmade carpet.

Great visit in an impressive showroom. As an attempt by Turkish government to encourage local women to remain in the rural area rather than move to the city, women are trained, experienced to different levels while being paid for their work. Staff was gracious and...More
