HEREKE IMPERIAL FACTORY

Hereke, located 70km in the south east of Istanbul, was the famous Imperial workshops of the Sultans. Artistic and technical superiority of Hereke rugs and talent of Hereke weavers put these carpets among the most distinguished and most valuable rugs of the world. Hereke rugs are considered as the part of Ottoman Palace group. Hereke's first silk textiles factory was established in 1843 with the order of Sultan Abdulmecit. In the following years, with the addition of looms producing cotton tissues, Hereke factory was enlarged. Hereke Imperial workshops obtained their silk directly from the city of Bursa, the first capital of Ottoman Empire
