Emirdag Rug; It is a weft-faced weaving produced as a result of hiding the warp threads by coloring the warp and kirman threads obtained from sheep wool with vegetable root dyes, passing the weft threads under and over the warp threads and compressing them. Emirdag Rug; It is used as a bed rug, upholstery rug and prayer rug. The sizes of Emirdag Kilims vary according to demand. The ones used as furniture rugs and upholstery are generally woven in sizes of 200 x 300 cm and 120 x 200 cm, and those used as prayer rugs are woven in 97 x 140 cm.
In Emirdag Kilims, brown, blue, green, red and shades of colors are mostly used, and black is generally used on small floors. Balance is achieved in colors and tones by using the same color as the color of the middle ground on the outer border. In Emirdağ Kilim, weaving methods with curved scarf, wrapping frame, framed around, buttonhole, single clamping and double clamping are used. Pattern and motif shapes: Patterns used in Emirdağ Kilim are generally geometric. In addition to this, depictions of plants, animals, people and objects and symbols connected to traditions are frequently used. In most of the weavings, motifs known as plates, belly, balls placed on the floor are repeated and the whole floor is filled. Motifs have geofence-specific names. The history of Emirdağ Kilim dates back to ancient times and the production method, which requires mastery skills, includes conditions specific to geographical borders. For this reason, there is a connection with the geographical border.
Emirdağ Kilim is woven on semi-tilt looms called ıstar or rope tree. Before weaving, the fence or chain ring is knitted. The end of the thread is held between the index finger and thumb, and a ring is made by turning it from the inside out. With the help of the index finger, the yarn in between is pulled from the inside of the ring and a chain ring is formed. The process is repeated and chain knitting is done as much as the width of the weaving. Two rows of wefts are thrown over the warp threads and then joined with a chain ring. Plain weaving is done with 5-10 rows of warp yarn at the beginning and end of weaving. Threads are passed from one end to the other with the help of a shuttle through the mouthpiece that is opened during weaving. During weaving, a section called “skirt” with a width of 10 - 20 cm is woven before proceeding to the actual weaving. Then, the actual weaving is started with colored weft threads. The tools used to compress the wefts during weaving are called girgene, and the ones made of wood are called kirkit. The two teeth of the kirkits, which are generally made of hawthorn and hornbeam wood, are called toothgir or snot, and the three and five teeth are called kirkit. In certain areas where there are patterns on the rug, a weft thread in the color of that pattern goes back to the border of the pattern of another color. Thus, patterns are formed by wefts of different colors going back and forth between the gathers. During the weaving process, the weft threads are constantly compressed with a reed. By constantly following the pattern borders, the warp thread used in that area is increased or decreased by one according to the course of the weaving. Weft threads are woven on their own by leaving them in the form of an arc without pulling too much. Areas that narrow as you move upwards in the weaving are pre-woven. The upwardly expanding sections are woven in line with the motif on the side. Weaving is tied to the loom from the right and left, so that the warp threads do not narrow. The fringes of the completed weavings are left and the warp is cut and removed from the loom. The left fringes are knitted and tied, and the excess threads are cut from the rug and the production of Emirdağ Kilim is completed.
Rug Condition Terms:

The value of new or second hand rugs and carpets, which are in outstanding condition, continues to increase over the years.
Antiques: Although the product is over 80 years old, it has a design, paint technique and origin features that can preserve its artistic value. Antique products can tear, wear, and cause pain. Most antique products have a more valuable aura as they age due to the natural paint and construction technique. For this reason, antique expert values are formed according to the current state of the antique products, the way they are worn, their production techniques and the region.
Excellent: Rugs and rugs in excellent condition are flawless, clean, with the potential to increase in value, bearing the characteristics of the region, and produced correctly. They can be antiques when used properly.

Medium: These are carpets and rugs suitable for daily use, which may have minor damage, do not have a high degree of motif difficulty, and are average in terms of yarn and paint material used.
Mediocre: Rugs and rugs with low pattern difficulty, relatively easy to manufacture, lost their quality in various aspects (torn stains, paint mixing, etc.).
Hand-made carpets and rugs do not have bad or very bad classes. All the carpets and rugs produced are a great hand labor. However, there are carpets and rugs that cannot create their value within the bounds of possibility. All carpets and rugs produced are very special works of art that require great effort and production time. For this reason, there is no carpet or rug with low hand made value. There are only carpets and rugs whose appraisal value is relatively lower than their square meter. Our recommendation is to use handmade carpets and rugs in your home, office, and in all areas of your life. One square meter rug or carpet is made in 1-2 months on average. Natural rugs and carpets organize the energy of your life, add value to life, improve your artistic approach, and are beneficial to nature. It is completely a part of nature, sustainable and harmless.
