I began my field works for collecting the materials of socio-cultural elements those I will attract your attention, are based on the southern regions of Kazakhstan and of Sir Derya (Seyhun) in the years 1996-97. Then I turn back to Turkey in August 1997 via Georgia by doing research in Kyrgizistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Azerbaijan. For comparing these materials I had collected with the ones in Turkey, I did more research in Kars, Igdır/Melekli region, Dogubeyazıt, Van, Hakkari, Şırnak, Bitlis, Ahlat, Nusabin, mardin, Elazığ, Siverek, Kanlıavşar, Tunceli, Erzincan, Malatya and Kadirli`s Yusuf İzettin village, Karatepe region which is famous with rags, Karakılavuz which is one of the central villages of Tekirdağ, central Edirne, Yenice and Ayvacık town center and villages of Çanakkale, Edremit, Savaştepe, Sındırgı towns of Balıkesir, and in Bergama.
Between years 1999-2001, it had been possible for me to compare my new researches in Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and some regions of Kırgisiztan, with the ones I did before. Separately during September 2001 I had done studies in Altays. (Novokuznes, Novosibir, Abakan, Minusinsk, Sayanogras, Uybat, Kızıl)
Although this study was undertaken across the wide regions in Altays and Turkey, I do not postulate the results of this research reflect the Turkic world as a whole. However, we think that the information, which was obtained across the study`s regions, gives important clues for Turkic world.
We also had possibility to observe the studies about Altay, Saha, Eastern Turkistan, and Iran. At the end of the comparison, it is noteworthy that the stamps on traces in other places then “Eastern Iran-Persian Iran”; the stamps in other places and the ones you saw are either identical our similar, especially the differences between Western Iranian and Eastern Iranian rugs are differing from each other. Even the ones who have no information regarding rugs can easily separate the rugs of Eastern Iranian and the ones of Western Iranian. The main deferens among them is the dominant presence of abstract figures in Western Iranian carpets-rugs and that of natural stamps in Eastern Iranian ones. Thus the stamps from Saha region to Edirne show similarity or identicalness -except Persian Iran. But in the motifs of machine-made carpets and rugs in Turkey, are seriously having tendency towards the Persian stamps.
