A woman extracts silk for carpet weaving in Göreme, Turkey. Rug weaving in Anatolia first began with the arrival of the Turkish tribes from Central Asia, who settled in the region in the 11th century. More than a decoration, carpets have unique stories to tell in their designs, colors, of creation and localities where they are produced. It is tradition that only women weave carpets, while men repair or sell them.
