About

Hunting for rugs

My grandfather was a rug dealer and collector and i grew up seeing his rugs laid all over his home, when i say "all over" i really mean it, because rugs were not only laid on the floor but on the sofa, on tables and even on his bed so even as a little kid i was familiar with kilims and carpets, i was able to identify their origins by then. When i grew up after trying my chance in a few different industries after my graduation, finally i decided to dive into world of rugs. My grandfather was waiting to guide me with pleasure, it was maybe the most happy moment of his life when i told him i decided to continue his business and passion. In a very short time he taught me all he could and the more i learned about the rugs the more addicted i became to them. After getting that intense education from my grandfather and being able to fly by my own, i began taking tours all over Turkey for the hunt of rugs, looking for hidded treasures to be brought back to life. This is the most fun part of my job, i visit different cities, regions, villages to village and look for antique handmade kilims and carpets everywhere. Finding a rare rug in an unexpected place is a dopamin blast, a real pleasure :) it feels more like a hobby rather than a job to me.

After collecting the kilims and carpets from all over Turkey, i send them all for a professional washing, all these old ladies take a good bath and comes back to me nice and clean, ready to be photoshot, after the photo shooting process completed they are all folded nicely and placed in the warehouse waiting for their new owners and new homes to start their second life
