Carpet Weaving Today

In the Adıyaman region, using the resources of the Social Assistance and Solidarity Foundation, the Special Administration Directorate, and the Association for Rural Services, carpet production activities continue under the direction of the Directorate for Public Education. The carpets that are produced as a result of orders from private companies provide a living for hundreds of young girls.
During the winter months when there is no agricultural work, the young girls and women of the mountain villages spend their time producing the coarse-weave carpets of the region.
The natural wool carpets of Adıyaman are used widely. These traditional carpets are desired not just throughout the country, but also throughout the world.
