Turkish Carpets Laid Out in Fields as Part of Coloring Process

ANTALYA, Turkey Workers in southern Turkey were laying out handmade carpets in the sun on Friday as part of their coloring process.

Stunning drone imagery captured by an epa-efe journalist showed the roughly 30,000 elaborately-patterned rugs being rolled out onto sun-kissed fields owned by carpet-making companies in the Dosemealti district of Antalya.

The reason for laying the carpets out in this way was to soften their coloring towards more pastel shades.

Weaving carpets, which decorate the floors and walls of homes across the country, is a process that has traditionally been undertaken by women.

The items play an important part in Turkish cultural tradition.
