Textures and Turkish Carpets

I visited Turkey in June this year and  we had a look around at a few Turkish carpets. They came in different sizes, colours and textures. I was amazed to learn that a genuine Turkish carpet can sometimes take years to make.

      Yes, depending on the complexity of the designs and the knots it can cost many thousands of dollars- I was amazed!
