Hereke produces the highest quality of this style of palace carpet in Turkey. This design and colours in this specific Hereke is very rare and was revered by the Sultans.About 60 km east of Istanbul lies the Turkish town of Hereke, probably the best known centre for the production of both wool and silk carpets. Hereke carpets with their sophisticated colour palette, intricate patterns and faultless workmanship have the reputation for being some of the finest workshop style carpets in the world. Originally produced for the Sultans of the Ottoman empire. Hereke carpet workshops were first estabilished by Sultan Abdul Mecid in 1891 to weave carpets of the highest quality for the palace only. Hereke has always made very fine carpets of wool,with cotton foundations, though it concentrates also on the finest and most expensive quality of pure silk carpets.
