Cappadocia i,s well known as a famous tourism region but before the boom in tourism carpet weaving was famous in both the Cappadocian villages of Avanos and Urgup.Carpet weaving started in the area around 1700s.and continued until the late 1970's, though only approx 250 looms operated in the area in total
Avanos rugs are always wool on wool and use a distintive medallion design with multiple borders
Due to the small number of Avanos rugs woven they have become very collectable on todays market .
