WEAVING AND FIBER ARTS TOUR  DOBAG : 
DOBAG, a Turkish acronym for Natural Dye Research and Development Project, is responsible for weaving some of the finest carpets in the world today. This highly successful Cultural Survival Project was started in 1982 by  in the villages south of Troy, Turkey.  Since its inception, The DOBAG Project has produced superior carpets with natural plant dyes and traditional Turkish motifs. They accomplish this by using only the finest weaving materials and techniques from start to finish. Beginning with sheepís wool, which is gathered during the spring shearing when the wool is most resilient and lustrous. The wool is then hand-carded and hand-spun before it is vegetable dyed with locally cultivated plant matter. The luster of this wool and the care that goes into making each rug has allowed DOBAG to boast that their rugs are the antiques of the future. Each woman creates her rug in her own home while tending to family needs. She uses the motifs and symbols of her ancestors and sells her rug to the cooperative. The cooperative is under the supervision of the University of Marmara, in Istanbul and each carpet must achieve an excellence in color, construction and overall design before receiving the DOBAG stamp of approval.Each woman creates her rug in her own home while tending to family needs.
