Near Kusadasi, Turkey and not far from Ephesus, we were treated to an amazing carpet making demonstration/experience. Each one handmade. The silkworms that feast only on mulberry trees are harvested and their silk made into stunning creations, some taking years. Scores of carpets were rolled out and we were “required” to remove our shoes and walk around, lay down, experience these beautiful creations up close and personal. Tempted, we escaped without making an investment.
