  • Hamit is quite possibly the most genuine and honest carpet dealer in Istanbul. A man with a genuine love for his trade, who not only trades, but collects and restores. Only original Turkish rugs and kilims, many very old, and each with its unique story. If you want to invest confidently in a traditional rug, and avoid all the scam artists and pushy salesmen, then look no further.
  • Me and my wife bought a 1.7x2.7m carpet from Motif Carpet Shop last week. We are very happy with the purchase. We recommend you visit this shop if you want to buy a carpet in Istanbul.
