It is well-known that weaving has been carried out in Sivas and its counties, one of the important weaving centers of Anatolia, since the years when the Turks migrated to Anatolia. The widespread weaving in the countryside, however, has been disappearing due to many reasons today. With handicrafts and one of its important branch, weaving, carried out for centuries in Anatolia, have been officially involved in the protection of intangible cultural heritage, work on Kirkit textiles has gained importance-especially for carpets which are found to be for use in personally-owned collections. Documentation is being made because they cannot be officially protected. For this purpose, by taking photos of the carpets, it is necessary to issue identity documents together with their technical and aesthetic qualities, and further, to record it.
