GORDES

Turkish symmetrical knot , so-called Gördes , is named after this city . Carpets of the XVII-XVIII centuries had the image of an imposing mihrab with a lamp hanging in the centre and straight columns . Two rectangles at the base of the niche and above it were decorated with floral ornaments . A similar motif was on the wide border . The range of shades is wide , from ivory and green to blue , light blue and red .
