As it is known, hand-made carpets were woven in all parts of Anatolia in the past. Especially in nomad villages, individuals in migrant towns spun the fleece they cut from little cows by hand and transformed them into yarn. Even though some themes belong to a region, improvised patterns are found on many rugs. Many rugs have the signature or name of the weaver. A woman whose husband did not return from the military weaves a rug of meters in length or finishes the pattern at the end of the rug and wants to describe everything in life is not very symmetrical and straight. Rug weaving was not only a source of income and an occupation for the people of that period, but also a kind of therapy method.
Rug weaving started to increase in Anatolia since the foundation of the Republic. Especially with the carpet weaving factory established in Isparta in the 1950s, hand-woven rug weaving lived its golden age. During this period, hundreds of thousands of rugs were woven from Isparta and its surroundings. In the 1980s, with the accelerated rural-to-city migration and the increase in mechanization, hand-woven rug production diminished extensively. The smaller houses in metropolitan cities reduced the demand for old large and heavy woolrugs. Moreover, traditional Turkish rugs knot can only be woven with fine fingers. Contrasted with the earlier years, weaving has gone to its last point with the nonattendance of people who can remain at home and weave rugs.
Developing fashion and industrialization has shown itself in the field of decoration as in every field. People have started to pay attention to colors and patterns in home decoration and to renew decorations more frequently within their budgets.

These collected rugs were treated such as shaving, washing, powder closet, sunbathing, bleaching, and dyeing, and they have been started to achieve their new identities. We shaked up conventions and create connections between traditional and contemporary designs. The result is the 50year old heritage Turkish rugs have been turned into modern Vintage style.
