Turkish Pattern & Textile Heaven


I recently took a trip with some friends to Turkey to explore the small towns, eat delicious food and shop.  I'll be sharing some of my travels over the next few weeks, but just had to start with the shopping.  Textiles in Turkey are to. die. for.  Seriously, from kilim (stellar rugs) to pillow cases to beautifully woven fabrics, there is so much artistry that goes into creating anything pattern related in this part of the world.  Even the tile work and ceramics incorporate these incredible patterns.  I wish I could have taken it all home with me, but made out with a few pillow cases and one amazing rug for the house.  So, for now, I'll have to live through the photos of these one of a kind fabrics and patterns.  Enjoy and check back soon for more photos of the gorgeous scenery!
