Antalya, with its magnificent beaches and dense forests, is one of the most important holiday destinations not only in our country, but throughout the world. Antalya’s natural beauties, historical artifacts dating back thousands of years, and countless cultural treasures attract many local and foreign tourists to the city every year. Millions of people every year enjoy the sea and magnificent views of this beautiful city. However, natural beauties are not the only places in the center of Antalya’s wonderful scenery. The application, which has been carried out for many years in the Dosemealti region, also contributes to the emergence of incredibly beautiful landscapes: Carpet fields.
The fields in the Doshemealti area are home to thousands of handmade carpets and kilims during the summer season. The “carpet fields” of Antalya create an exciting visual feast, consisting of a mixture of different colors and patterns! Here’s what you need to know about Antalya’s magnificent carpet fields.
The Došemealti area in Antalya is the site of a very unusual practice in summer.
The fields in the villages and micro-districts of the district, such as Camili, Exili, Ylydzha, Killik, Karatash, Ahyrtash, Dereli, Kovanlyk, Kevse, Karaveliler and Selimiye, are covered with thousands of handmade carpets and carpets when the harvest season ends! Locals claim that this unusual practice began about 50 years ago and continues uninterruptedly to this day.
Carpets and rugs brought to the region from different parts of Turkey and the world are laid out in the fields after washing and repairing.
Thousands of carpets and rugs are laid on the fields in the Doshemealti region in about 3 months.
The main goal of this application is to clean the carpets of germs and make the colors turn pastel in a shorter time.
Although the scorching sun of Antalya from time to time causes inconvenience to people living in this region, it is very useful for carpets and rugs! Carpets and handmade kilims, more valuable than others, are stored under the scorching sun for several days after being spread in the fields in the Doshemealti region.
Thanks to this application, valuable products are cleansed of germs and bacteria. In addition, rugs and kilims, which are products of intensive handwork, acquire pastel colors in a shorter time when exposed to the sun.
Unusual fields are guarded round the clock from rain and wind.
Officials who work diligently to ensure that carpets and field rugs acquire the most beautiful colors are constantly on guard against other adverse weather events, especially from rain and wind. For example, carpets that have curled or curled up due to the wind are straightened immediately. In addition, the “products” in these unusual areas turn inside out at regular intervals. Thus, the colors of carpets and rugs change exactly as desired.
These fields, which contain a variety of Anatolian carpets, as well as Isparta, Milas and Persian carpets, create breathtaking views.
The visual feast created by the carpet fields has attracted many people to the region, especially in recent years. Locals say that over the past two years, local and foreign tourists have flocked to the area to see the carpet fields up close. However, carpet fields are also very popular with honeymooners. Many couples want their “wedding photo” to be taken in fields with colorful carpets.
