*Info about Transylvanian Carpets*
Carpets called “Siebenburgen” or “Transylvanian are those which have been found in the Protestan churches of Siebenburgen. Some of them carry a label on the back stating where when and by whom the piece has been donated to the church. Sieberburgen/Transylvanian is an area between the South and the East Carpathian and West Siebenburgen mountains in Romania. In 1541 the area came under rule of the Ottoman Empire and became a Turkish protectorate of the principality of Transylnia. Legend has it that Suleiman ‘the magnificient’ sent his vizier with the gift of a beautiful carpet to the Black Church in Kronstadt(Brasov) as proof of his friendly disposition and respect for the Christian religion. Apparently the patriarch was over-joyed and ordered 2 000 of the beautiful pieces as decoration for his churches. The use of carpets did not remain for long the domain of religion; soon the merchants discovered the new market for the Anatolian carpet and a flourishing trade developed.
