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

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 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.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year to All

Wishing Everyone A Very Merry & Safe Christmas And A Happy New Year

Thank you to all our lovely customers who have supported us throughout this difficult year - your ongoing support means a lot to us. 

Despite the tier 4 lockdown we are still Open for Business via our Website, Email, Phone, Web Chat as well as Collect from Shop!  Luckily we just managed to get our Turkish Shipment into the country this week and we have an exciting new range of rugs and runners coming in the New Year - we will be busy over the next few weeks getting our new Turkish stock photographed and online - watch this space!


Winter Update

So here we all are in another lockdown - we have our fingers crossed we will be released come December and can open the shop to the public again as we miss seeing everyone! In the meantime we are busy fulfiling orders online and over the phone - turning our rugs into “magic carpets” and flying them out to your homes every day!

We've been getting creative with this pandemic in our midst; we are still sourcing some interesting things to stock up our shop and website, especially since Christmas is fast approaching. For example, did you know we have Gift Vouchers which are perfect for those who are hard to choose for?

Our NEW Afghan Poufs are fresh in and on our site today! They come in a beautiful mix of bright colours as well as the more traditional terracottas.

Our selection of Rugs & Kilims continues to grow and, despite it not being easy, we are managing to source some fabulous pieces which are due to arrive in an exciting shipment from Turkey in the next month or two.  We have Afghan shipments coming through fairly regularly and we are finding some unusual colourful pieces to add to our collection.

We've been getting nostalgic for some of the great travels we've had seeking out beautiful carpets & kilims for our shop and we are making exciting plans for 2021 - there's a lot of catching up to do!

May News

A few snippets of Latest News...

Although lockdown continues, it does give some of us the time to re-style and tidy up some of our rooms - all this time at home does give us that opportunity at least!  With that in mind, we have been busy getting some nice new treasures photographed and uploaded to our website - all now ready to browse in the Latest Arrivals Section of our site should you be looking for some inspiration!

Another new service is our free Virtual Appointments - a chance to have an informal chat about your rug requirements from the comfort of your own home! A great alternative during lockdown to the usual face to face service you would receive when visiting us at our Brighton Shop.


We hope everyone continues to stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you at some point back in the Brighton Shop - in the meantime we continue to provide our excellent fast online deliveries to the UK and Internationally.
