The Middle East is historically known as a source of beautiful, elegant rugs, and Turkey is one of the most well-renowned sources of those turkish rugs for sale. Of particular interest are the Hereke antique rugs made in the small coastal town of Hereke, Turkey. Antique Hereke rugs are truly beautiful pieces of art, and it's truly mind-boggling to think that so many beautiful pieces came from a single town.
