Traditional hand-woven carpets in Anatolia with different pattern and color characteristics have an important place in Turkish cultural heritage. The most important cultural carrier, are woven by hand of yuruks in many centers. Our carpet regions, which have not heard much of their name except for the centers with their woven characters in front, have formed a certain character in themselves but are existent all over Anatolia. Kütahya is one of these centers. In the region where the Karakeçili yuruks have a dominant population, a unique pattern has formed a character, and a group of weaving called "Çakmak Carpet" around the province attracts attention. It is important to introduce these carpets that have developed within the Yörük life culture and have reached to the present day. In this study, the carpets found in the village of Çakmak were examined and technical analysis was carried out. Thus, it was tried to determine the location of the Çakmak carpet by revealing similar and dissimilar aspects in the Turkish carpet groups. We aim to contribute to the Turkish hand weaving carpentry literature and to increase its awareness, to determine the technical, design and composition properties and contribute to other scientific studies to be done in this issue by documenting these carpets.
