Carpets woven in Hereke in Izmit shows a mixture of influences having the decorative characteristics mainly of Mameluke, Anatolian and Iranian carpets. Silk, gold and silver have been used in some. Masters brougth from the inportant carpet centres of the Anatolia by the Ottoman Sultans were employed in the Hereke factory and wove high quality carpets both for the place and for foreigners. Hereke carpets are only produced in Hereke, a coastal town in Turkey, 60 km from Istanbul. The materials used are silk, a combination of wool and cotton and sometimes gold or silver threads. It is observed that some times Turkish ( Gordes ) knot similar to the Sine (Iranian) knot was used in this carpets. It is easier to weave curved figures in Iranian carpets. The name of Hereke and even the name of the master was woven in to the carpets produced in Hereke.
