The production of Hereke rugs began in the mid-19th century under the patronage of Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid I. The sultan commissioned the establishment of the Hereke Imperial Factory in 1843 to produce high-quality textiles, including rugs, for the Ottoman palaces. As a result, Hereke became the centre of fine rug weaving in the Ottoman Empire, with expert craftsmen and designers from across the empire converging to create these magnificent works of art.

Over time, Hereke rugs gained international acclaim for their exceptional quality and intricate designs. By the late 19th and early 20th centuries, these rugs had become highly sought-after collector's items, gracing the floors of royal palaces and mansions worldwide.
