Flying Carpets?

Actually, I don't think there will be any carpets flying home with us, although we did enjoy learning about how carpets are made and experiencing some of the luxury inherent in handmade Turkish carpets.

Michelle learns how to tie the Turkish double knot.

Learning about the silk worm, Danielle and Helen look on.

The rug show.  And it was quite the show.  Some of began to talk seriously about how gendered this experience was, since women make the rugs and men sell the rugs.  

Emma, Michelle, and Sean decide that this is a good place for a nap.

Olivia enjoys the feel of the silk rugs.

Sarah deciding which pattern is her favorite.
