Weekly Photo Challenge: PATTERNS

DSC00643

This is that pattern of a carpet that I have taken a photograph of on a visit to a carpet factory in Kusadasi, a seaport in Turkey. All the carpets were handmade and I was told that the young women employed by the company not only made the carpets during the day, they also had to make a carpet which would be part of their dowry when they got married in their spare time. Needless to say, the bigger the carpet and the more intricate the pattern are coveted by future in-laws.
