Located in a region known as Bithynia in antiquity, the area of Kocaeli has a history infused with
splendor. Its geographic position allowed it to maintain its importance—which continues today—
Olbia, the name of the first settlement known in the area, was followed by Astacus, Nicomedia,
İznikmid, İzmid, and Kocaeli.
The best known among these historical names is Nicomedia, after Nicomedes, the founder of the
Kingdom of Bithynia. Especially in the era of the Roman and Byzantine empires, Kocaeli gained
even more significance, eventually becoming an imperial capital.
Entering Turkish rule a short time after the Anatolian Seljuks adopted İznik as a capital, the region
was captured permanently by Ghazi Akçakoca—one of the three Ottoman beys—in the time of

Traces of the Ottomans
Kocaeli is a basin that witnessed the founding era of the Ottoman Empire and has managed to
maintain its traditional historic texture as best as it could.
The mosques of Gebze, Kandıra Orhan Bey, Mehmet Bey, and Kara Bâli Bey; Sultan Suleiman
Bridge; Pertev Mehmet Pasha Mosque Complex; and Kasr-ı Hümayûn (the Imperial Summer House)
are the first to come to mind of the traces of the Ottomans in Kocaeli.
For the Ottomans, Kocaeli was a place of significance not only in the founding of the empire, but
also in its final times. The Mosque of Sultan Abdul Hamid II and the world-famous Hereke rugs are
among the Ottomans’ final imprints on the region.
The factory, founded in the first half of the 19th century as a weaving factory, in time switched to
producing rugs. Many of the empire’s important buildings, most notably the palaces of Dolmabahçe
and Beylerbeyi, were furnished with Hereke rugs.
Production was occasionally paused during the Republican era. From the 1950s onward, the
production of silk Hereke rugs picked up speed once again. The silk Hereke rugs, which possess
several international awards, are among the treasures of Kocaeli that continue to receive much
Hereke carpets are only produced in Hereke, a coastal town in Turkey, 60 km from Istanbul. The
materials used are silk, a combination of wool and cotton and sometimes gold or silver threads.
The Ottoman sultan, Abdülmecid I founded the Hereke Imperial Manufacture in 1841 to produce all
the textiles for his Dolmabahçe Palace on the Bosphorus. He gathered the best artists and carpet
weavers of the former Ottoman Empire in Hereke, where they began producing high quality rugs and
large carpets with unique patterns.
After completing work on the Dolmabahçe Palace, the Ottoman sultans used to give Hereke carpets
as gifts to selected visiting royalties, noblemen and statesmen. It was not until 1890 that some traders
in Istanbul were allowed to sell some of the pieces made at Hereke. With the end of the Ottoman
Empire the production of Hereke carpets was restricted until the middle of the 20th century when
some master-weavers in Hereke began once more to produce the carpets in continuation of the
tradition of the Ottoman palace carpets.
