with Integrity

For generations young women in the nomadic  tents and villages of Turkey have been hand weaving one of a kind vibrant rugs and kilims each with their local hand spun wool,unique natural dyes and with their own personal motifs and story.

An individual rug or kilim could take years to weave and each rug you purchase from our collection is 100% handmade and reflects the beauty and creativity of this time honored skill.


Every village, every tribe and every region have sizes, colors and designs that specifically showcase their historic traditions and this cultural identity is reflected in our curated collections. 

I like to buy at source and choose each of my rugs personally so you can be assured of their  originality  and authenticity .

Hi Welcome !

 I am the owner of Tribal Collections - a beautiful rug gallery in Goreme, Cappadocia.

Rugs and textiles have been my passion and my life for the 31 years that I have lived in Turkey.

A woman rug dealer is still quite rare here but this journey has captivated me with colors & design, techniques and treasures, knowledge and research, and a deep belief that that as a woman II needed to give a clear voice woman who weave their own stories into these unique rugs and kilim.

Rather than  the voice of a polished sales man,

I wanted to give my customers the genuine voice of the weaver,whether she be a nomad with free spirited motifs,a young village girl making rugs for her wedding dowry, or a city weaver using a a pattern to create elegant balanced designs .


My store is now considered a leading choice for those who wish to learn about. or buy one-of-a-kind  hand woven rugs or vibrant kilims

Enjoy my collection in person when visiting Turkey, or shop with me online.I am always happy to help  find the perfect rug for you .

Most importantly know you are buying from a trusted professional who is madly passionate about rugs!
