Handwoven in the town of Ghiordes (Gordes), northeast of Izmir in western Anatolia (now in Turkey). The prayer rugs of Ghiordes, together with those of Kula and Ladik, have long been especially prized in the Middle East, as well as in Europe and the United States. Some of them date from the last decades of the 18th century, borrowing elements from much earlier Ottoman court designs, with fields of red or ivory. Most, however, were produced during the 19th century, during which time other colours—blue, green, and brown—were used, and the field began to exhibit small motifs. Areas of white pile in Ghiordes carpets are often knotted in cotton.
