It is known that there are craft products produced by most nations of the world with their own culture and as the part of their identities are in existance, carpet and rug are the basic promoters of Turkish Cultural Identity. On the other hand, evolving technology, everchanging consumer type and taste perceptions create unconventional trends and uniformity in many parts of the world. This negatively affects both the craft activity and the outputs of the activity in many respects. Carpets and rugs, on the other hand, did not come to the point of disappearing completely like most craft activities, but there were very serious irreversible losses. At this point, it has been tried to protect the carpet and rug within the scope of Geographical Indication application which is one of the most popular applications in recent years. Even though significant achievements have been achieved in some products (especially in food and agricultural products) with this application, it is not possible to mention a significant success in terms of craft products. In this study, the current status of carpets and rugs, one of the most important elements of Turkish cultural identity, is discussed in the perspective of Geographical Indication application. In this context, a total of 27 products, 4 of which are rugs, were examined. Within the scope of our research, it has been found that some of these Geographical Indications are completely deleted from commercial life, some of them are no longer made although weaving craftsmen and only a few of them are only woven according to purchase order. Accordingly, it was understood that the Geographical Indications application could not be successful for these products. Based on these findings, it has been tried to make long-term inferences by emphasizing the extent to which the application of Geographical Indication alone can be sufficient as well as the extent to which some traditional craft products can survive within the scope of change / transformation worldwide.
