Milas Carpet Making
Types of Milas Carpets
ClassicalCarpets that are made in Milas are unique to
Ada MilasThe “Ada Milas” carpet is one of the oldest examples and has side patterns in lines next to each other and in each column the pattern is usually repeated. Baroque style carpets were made during the reign of Sultan Abdulmecit, which was a time greatly influenced by European and Ottoman art and architecture, and have zig-zag lines as opposed to straight and flower patterns on the sides; the Ada Milas carpet actually took its name from a design of a bouquet of carnations.
KaracahisarThere is another type of Milas carpet that is square, rectangular or hexagonal in shape and has a design of medallions woven on it and were specifically woven in the village of Karacahisar.
During the 18th and 19th centuries the carpets were made using pure wool which was coloured with natural and root dyes and today carpets are still being produced not only in Karacahisar but Oren, Dorttepe, Gereme, Bozalan, Ikizkoy, Pinarkoy, Mezgit, Guregiz, Akcakaya and other regional villages.
