Hereke carpets

Hereke is a former small fisherman’s village near Istanbul and genuine Hereke Carpets and rugs are knotted in this small town. Sultan Abdulmejid I established the Royal Court Manufacture in Hereke in 1843. After the end of the Ottoman Empire in 1923 the Royal Court Manufacture in Hereke was closed and the carpet production came almost to an end. Around 1950 some families in Hereke started once again to produce Hereke silk rugs.
