Abstract

Hand-woven carpet, one of the symbols of Isparta has lost its popularity in the sense of business, employment, socio-cultural and economic aspects. In 1960s the carpet industry which provided a great amount of income especially in local areas, and then in the overall citywas pushed out of the market by failing to compete due to prevailing of machine-woven carpets and their being much more cheaper. Isparta hand-woven carpet is known as winter-time carpets in respect of its technical properties. Among the patterns of the Isparta hand-woven carpet whose weaving woof and warp thread are made of cotton and loops are made of wool, plant motifs stand out. Moreover, weaving thickness (weaving quality) is low because wool knits are thick; that is, the number of loops in each decimeter is limited. Motifs include rougher details, so figures cannot be understood. It is necessary to renew the Isparta hand-made carpets that are needed to be revised in the sense of materials (using tinsel strings made of wool, golden and silver) and figures in order to have the business regained the Isparta hand-woven carpet industry. In this study, the revitalization of Isparta hand-woven carpet industry and its sustainability have been handled. SWOT analysis was done regarding this purpose. As a result of SWOT analysis, the strong and poor sides, and the opportunities and threatening factors of Isparta hand-woven carpet industry have been found out. Keywords: Hand-woven carpets, Sustainable development, SWOT analysis.
