The history of the carpets of the Western Anatolia Region is being started from the 14th century when the Turks dominated the region. Bergama carpets which have marked the local carpets are thought to have emerged in the same period. The carpets included in the paintings of European painters are included in the 14th-15th. It shows that it was exported in centuries. Carpet weaving was a significant source of livelihood until recently in Bergama. The old carpets included in this group are valued in the international carpet community and are still traded as an important carpet group. One of the places where the old carpet trade is done is the auction companies operating in this area. It is possible to find examples of old carpets on the sites of auction companies that are not even in museums. Obtaining information about these valuable carpets in commercial circulation is very difficult to compile academic knowledge. Therefore, it is seen that academics do not pursue a source of information as they do not realize before or after. In this study, the results of an important research about carpets displayed with Bergama expression in eight international auction websites are presented.
