The tulip and the carnation have both played major roles in the Turkish history of arts and crafts. Hence, the tulip is a frequent motif in a lot of the art, that was made during the reign of the Ottoman Empire. The preference for the tulip was at its highest, in the 17th century, where the Sultans established tulip gardens near the palace and presented handpicked tulip bulbs as valuable gifts, to foreign dignitaries, which, in time, contributed to the so-called “Tulip war” in Europe. The carnation flower also originates from the Middle East and was highly treasured as a motif, in both textiles, arts, and craft, during the time of the Ottomans.
