Deventer is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands. The place is already mentioned in 9th century sources.
In the 19th century, however, Deventer became an industrial town, the Koninklijke Deventer Tapijtfabriek producing coarsely knotted carpets until the mid 20th century. Many copied Turkish Ushak design in a rustic, folk art fashion best suited with country furniture.
