Speaking of silk rugs, Helleke in Turkey and Kum in Iran are known as the production areas of high-class silk rugs in the world.

In 1841, the emperor of the Ottoman Empire summoned craftsmen from all over the country to make textiles for the court. And the production of carpet begins. That is the beginning of the Hereke carpet. Originally the Hereke rugs were made for court decoration.
And after the decoration of the court, the Helleke carpet was given as a gift to foreign guests visiting the emperor.
After that, from around 1890, only some specific dealers were allowed to sell Helleke rugs, and it seems that they can sell them.
Since then, Hereke rugs have been fascinating people all over the world.

In Turkey, the number of silk rug craftsmen is decreasing year by year, and the number of rugs produced is decreasing, which makes Turkish silk rugs more valuable and valuable.

The weave is so fine that it has a superb weight of 1.3 million knots!
