The main material of the carpet is wool, and the wool obtained by shearing from the sheep once a year is used as raw material in the weeds because they live in mountain and plain villages of Aksaray and they are dealing with sheep breeding. Aksaray has been known as one of the weaving centers since centuries. As for Aksaray carpets, Taşpınar weaves are the first to come to mind.
