Country of origin: Turkey
Bergama: West Anatolian old city with a strong weaving tradition. This antique Turkish Bergama rug was made in western Anatolia in the late 19th century. Rugs of this type are sometimes called Kiz-Bergama, from Turkish kiz meaning ‘girl’ or ‘bride’. They are wedding rugs made by the bride-to-be and given by her as a present to the bridegroom on the day of their wedding. This traditional background might explain why Bergama rugs of this type are often quite wonky.
The colours of the carpet look different depending on the angle from which you look at it.
