Turkish carpets

May 11, 2010

This bookmark from Turkey imitates a turkish carpet:

The Turkish carpets are among the best known art forms produced by the Turks. Turkish people protect themselves from the extremes of the cold weather by covering the floors, and sometimes walls and doorways, with carpets.

They’re used in most of the houses, as, in general, Turks take their shoes off upon entering a house. They are also used in mosques, on the floor and walls.
