Antalya Dosemealti

The finest contemporary and highest quality of wool carpets currently made in Turkey are produced in a town near Antalya, called Dosemealti. Made by the Yoruk semi-nomadic tribes who produce the wool and dyes themselves. This characteristic piece has the predominant colours of aged red and dull blue. The borders have the distinctive pattern of the sheep's eye, knife tip and the 'hands on hips' mother goddess motif. The field shows a large dull red double mihrab, within it three ram's horn medallions. Notice the ears of grain representing fertility and carnation also known as the flower of the people.
