DOBAG / YUNTDAG / KOZAK / KARAMAN / ÇANAKKALE CARPETS These are small towns south of Bergama in Western Turkey producing carpets with small patterns and abundant colours reminiscent of many distinctive Caucasian weavings  Besides the wonderful wool quality, and medium density knotting, Yuntdag, Kozak and Karaman carpest have a soft but contrasting palette of colours and more geometrical designs of Caucasian / Turkoman descent. The significance of the motifs originates in the nomadic lifestyle of these early tribal weaving groups.

Antique carpets originally from these groups are rarely found on todays markets and are highly collectable .
