  Bergama, Bergamo, Pergamum Map

Bergama, Bergamo, Pergamum are all names for modern day Bergama a city near the Aegean sea in Northwest Turkey.

 
Bergama rugs traditionally have dyed wefts. usually red, and long silky pile. Size made are from mats up to about 4 meters. The rugs tend to be nearly square. Bergama rugs can be rather formal showing workshop influences or they can show strong tribal influences. The Yagcibedir tribe lives in the Bergama area and makes distinctive tribal rugs. Antique Bergama Rugs & Carpets
More than two wefts in old Bergama Rugs

This rug has two to three shots of light red weft. The back is flat and the wefts are sinuous. Bergama rugs are known for having a red weft, Hubel, Reinhard G. The Book of Carpets page 70.

Walter Hawley is not one of my favorite source on rugs but he does add some good points to the discussion of Bergama rugs. He described the knots as being tied with fine yarn. The wefts he describes as reddish brown of small diameter completely hiding the warps. In Bergama rugs from before 1770 he notes that you are likely to see variation in the number of wefts throughout the rug. Hawley, Walter A. Oriental Rugs Antique and Modern. pages 50 - 57.
