İbrahim Özdemir was born in Dalakçı village of Mucur District of Kırşehir in 1939. He is a collector that accumulates ethnographic works, antiques and books. İbrahim Özdemir who lives in Kırşehir graduated of Technical Agriculture and Agriculture School. After working in State Production Farms for a while, he went abroad in 1970. Özdemir, who worked for many years in Germany and returned to Kırşehir in 2002, is also a poet and writer. The most prominent pieces of ethnographic artifacts belonging to the Anatolian cultures in the collection of Ibrahim Özdemir, which is approved by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, are the textiles. In this study, 4 pieces of carpet cushions and 4 pieces of carpet pillows will be introduced especially in the textiles. Carpets belong to the districts of Ozbag and Mucur. Some of these texts were left from the family, and some were included in the collection through purchasing. In the Kırşehir region, carpet weaving is reduced to the point of no attempt today. People who know how to weave are women of advanced age group and do not weave anymore. Young people do not like carpet weaving courses opened by public institutions. As of today, Kırşehir carpets continue to exist only with the samples that were woven in the past and stored or used. The carpet cushions and carpet pillows in Ibrahim Ozdemir's collection are important in terms of being a beautiful example of Ozbag and Mucur carpets with a different place in the culture of Kırşehir weaving. In addition, the carpet was found to be worth investigating in terms of getting an idea of the vegetative dyeing of the area by going out from the yarns used in carpets. These carpets were examined in terms of color, pattern, arrangement, application and technical features.
