**Information about Milas Rugs
*Milas region and the Türkmen tradition
Milas is one of the regions in Turkey whose inhabitants kept their Türkmen heritage in its liveliest (the term Türkmen is often used in Turkey to denote ties to the former semi-nomadic lifestyle). As aside clothing and traditions this heritage also includes the art of carpet weaving. It is generally admitted that a distinctive breed of Milas rugs came into existence in the 16th century starting with the "seccade"prayer rugs which are smaller in dimension. By the 18th century and the 19th century two types of Milas rugs traditional (or classical) and baroque could be distinguished on the basis of their colors and designs.
