The tradition of rug-making in Turkey is, by some accounts, just as old as Persia's. While it is impossible to know for sure whether Turkey or Persia was the first to make rugs, there is no denying the longstanding traditions that make Turkish rugs some of the most important in history. Turkish rugs are classified into four main types based on what materials were used to create them: wool on wool, wool on cotton, Viscose on cotton, and silk on silk. Turkish rugs are also classified by the region in which they were made. While every Turkish rug is a unique creation, they generally share characteristics depending on the region and historical era in which they were made.
The Turkish rug-making tradition has historically been strongest in Anatolia, but since the 16th century the number of rug-weaving centers in Turkey has greatly expanded to include many different cities. Some of the Turkish rugs produced in these regions have become known as Translyvanian rugs, because they can be found in many of the churches in Transylvania. In terms of color, Turkish rugs tend to use red and blue most often. Green, however, is considered to be a sacred color, and is usually reserved for prayer rugs. Turkish prayer rugs use geometric motifs and always have an arch or other shape which is used to point the Turkish rug toward Mecca during prayer.
Apart from prayer rugs, the motifs that have been prominently used in Turkish rugs have changed over time. In the 13th century, the Selcuk Turks used a combination of floral and geometric motifs. During the 14th century, animal figures began to be used as motifs. By the 15th century, Turkish rugs began to use a combination of animal figures and geometric patterns. In the 16th century, Turkish rugs were being commissioned for palaces, leading to a "palace style" of rug that included floral motifs with twisting branches and leaves. This style is still used in some of today's Turkish rugs.
