What is a Turkish rug? Some people call rugs made after World War I Turkish and those before they call Anatolian. I am not totally convinced, so for now I am adding Turkish Rugs, Anatolian Rugs and Ottoman together as one broad category. Disagree? If so let me know why?

Transylvanian

Transylvania was part of the Ottoman Empire for 156 years from 1541 to 1697.

One of the nice parts of where I work is that I have access to people with expertise in almost anywhere. When I questioned our Transylvanian born "Area Expert" and he told me there are still Turks in Transylvania who weave rugs. Not as nice as these but who is to say they did not weave rugs like this in Ottoman times.
