About Us

YASHAR BISH is an exhilarating experience of the beautiful and the exotic from from Turkey’s Anatolian planes, Central Asia’s colourful lands and the Middle East's migrating tribes. We began trading in the early 1990's, after our serious interest in exploring Turkey and especially the rich Anatolian heritage brought us some spectacular finds...

Authentic vintage rugs add personal meaning and character to our homes while also promoting sustainability. Yashar Bish offers handmade rugs with natural materials that are durable and repairable, reducing our footprint. When their lifespan ends, these organic rugs decompose quickly, avoiding landfills. We proudly promote the sustainability benefits of antique and vintage items to preserve history.

We have developed a wide trading network which we continually expand and refine to ensure our customers have the best selection of Oriental Rugs & Accessories.  We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and will always do our absolute best to help.  We are happy to answer any questions, and can easily be contacted here.  


Our Brighton showroom is a visual delight of oriental wonder with piles of beautiful hand-woven oriental carpets, rugs and kilims from Turkey, Afghanistan and Persia, heaps of gorgeous hand-woven floor cushions and magnificent hand embroidered Suzani wall hangings and tribal trappings from Central Asia. Our jewel coloured brass filigree lamps, as well as the hand-painted rich and vivid ceramics, act as the perfect accolade to the soft and sumptuous Rugs & Kilims.
