Beautiful example of a genuine Turkish Istanbul rug with an 8/8 quality...
This rare large Turkish Istanbul silk rug is a perfect example of what the Turkish Istanbul carpets are famous for.
This large genuine Turkish silk rug is a rare find as most new silk carpets in Turkey are actually Chinese made and sold in the shops in Turkey as genuine Turkish pieces. As many collectors of Turkish rugs know, the weaving culture and tradition in Turkey was decimated by the influx of the fake Hereke rugs, but there are still some workshops in Istanbul that produce quality pure silk rugs, mainly in the 8/8 quality like in this piece. The 8/8 quality refers to the knots per centimeter and this equates to about 400kpsi. While the Hereke rugs are the best known pure silk Turkish rugs, there are other types such as the Cinar, Kayseri and Istanbul that are also known for having workshops.
The Istanbul silk rugs tend to be made with a 8/8 quality and are very close in details and designs to the Persian Tabriz rugs as you can see in this piece. The Istanbul silk rugs are also often times copied by Chinese workshops, but the quality and weight of the silk is typically a dead giveaway. Another feature of this genuine Istanbul silk rug is the price, which is very low compared to similar pieces. If you shop around, you will see that genuine Istanbul silk rugs in this rare large size and quality are much more expensive and it is in excellent condition.

Info About REAL vs. FAKE Hereke Rugs

Due to the large number of inquiries I receive about genuine and fake Hereke rugs and the misinformation that are being peddled by online and rug store retailers, I have created my own YouTube channel where I offer factual information for you. This particular Istanbul was also featured in one of our videos and if you like to see the video, please check below if you view this rug page on a laptop or desktop.

Learn about Turkish vs. Chinese Hereke Rugs

If you own or are interested in silk Hereke rugs, please watch this video in which I show you real Turkish silk Hereke rugs and the Chinese silk couterparts that are often sold as genuine Turkish rugs. For over 20 years, I have been getting a lot of inquiries about the Hereke rugs and so many have been scammed by the rug dealers in Turkey that I thought I try to show you the difference using actual rugs.
