We Have Been Travelling!

We Have Been Travelling!

We have been on a short road trip in Turkey, the weather was amazing and the scenery stunning so we thought we would share some images with you!

Turkish Breakfast

We stopped en route for an early morning Turkish Breakfast, as you can see it’s not for the faint hearted!

Tea in the Forest

We found a beautiful spot in a dry river bed to stop for some Turkish Tea; the shady tree platform in the forest was perfect for us.

Denizli Throws & Hamam Towels

We were travelling to see our suppliers who produce hand loomed cotton hamam towels and throws

Large Cotton Throws

fWe are so looking forward to these arriving as we have been low on stock for some time, they make great bed or sofa throws, we have around 9 colours on their way to us!

Hamam Towels

We have 11 colours of hamam towels currently en route from Turkey, just in time for those hot days on the beach!

Rug Washing

We travelled to the rug washing village where vintage kilims are washed ready for export, we always enjoy this trip as its beautiful countryside and the weather is warm with a gentle breeze, perfect for drying rugs!

Bright Kilims

fWe love soft coloured rugs as well and the vibrant bright colours, we like to have a mix of both to suit all our customers

Turkish Village Houses

fWe have a passion for village life and village houses in Turkey, we can’t resist taking pictures when we see such beautiful homes.

Winter Update 2021

New Delivery Just In

We are at that time of year when we really do want to keep warm and make our homes comfortable for the cold winter months ahead - a Persian, Turkish or Afghan handmade rug is a perfect way to make a room inviting and cosy!

We have just had a delivery of some beautiful Persian rugs which would sit nicely in front of a fire, by a sofa or beside a bed giving a welcoming soft texture underfoot!

Here are a few of the new pieces that have just gone live online and that are also available in our Brighton shop

You can also see the whole range in the Latest Arrivals section of our website

Summer Update

Here we are in the full swing of summer, between the rain that is, and we thought an update to our customers was well overdue!

Although times are still challenging we are busy organising new stock and we have some exciting deliveries coming later in the summer from Turkey and Afghanistan! In the meantime we are excited to have received our shipment of fabulous handmade gold plated Afghan Earrings with gorgeous coloured stones and quirky ancient designs, all made by local artisans in Turkey with each pair being unique - these are available at our Brighton Shop only at the moment



New Small Shipment of Rugs & Floor Cushions Just In

We have just uploaded a small but beautiful selection of Afghan Rugs & Kilims as well as some absolutely stunning Turkish and Afghan Carpet Floor Cushions - see them in our Latest Arrivals


New Afghan Kilim Stools
A new range of strong Afghan Kilim Stools are in stock which are available online and at our Brighton Shop. They are beautifully made with colourful Afghan Vegetable Dyed Kilims and are solid and substantial find out more here   

Rug Underlays

We know many of you have purchased rugs from us over the years, but did you know that having underlay under your rug makes it feel nicely cushioned and helps to stop any slippage and creeping, it also prolongs the life of your rug and helps air to circulate under your rug too - find out more about our underlays here
Some of Our Beautiful Kurdish Herki Runners are on Sale!!
Rarely are we able to put our rugs on sale, however there is currently an opportunity to buy a stunning Kurdish Herki Runner with 30% discount, see them in our Sale Section

Charities We Support

We are delighted to have become a Corporate Sponsor of Afghanaid, a Charity that works closely with Afghan rural communities in Afghanistan; we donate monthly to their projects as well as donating gifts to their Charity Auctions

 find out more about their invaluable work here





We are re-opening our Brighton Shop on Monday 12th April at 10am and can’t wait to welcome customers back again - we know many of you are waiting to be able to visit so you can see our great selection of rugs in person - we have continued getting exciting deliveries in recent months and the rug piles are nice and high in the shop, in anticipation of our re-opening on Monday. 

We shouldn’t forget to mention that we have had some fabulous new arrivals and our latest Persian Shipment is full of the most stunning and great value Tribal Shiraz, Qashqai and Hamadan Rugs which can be found in the Latest Arrivals section of our site.
