Whether you prefer a soft simple aesthetic, or embrace bold patterns and vibrant hues, you’ve come to the right place!
We ethically source, so all our rugs and kilims are 100% handmade and we love that each rug expresses the weaver's personality, and her individual design story.
Integrity is the cornerstone of my business and I wholeheartedly believe in supporting weaving traditions as well as the weavers who create the beautiful rugs and kilims in my collection.
For generations young women in nomadic tents and villages have been hand weaving
one-of- Kind viibrant rugs and kilims
using local hand spun wool, natural dyes and their own personal motifs to tell their stories.
An individual rug or kilim could take years to weave as every weaver and village or tribe can be recognised by their own specific sizes, colors and designs that in turn showcase their historic traditions and cultural identity.

I like to buy at source and choose
each rug personally so you can be
assured of quality, originality and authenticity
Every rug you purchase from us reflects individuality and style as well as
30yrs of experience and passion !
Hi Welcome !
I am the owner of Tribal Collections - a beautiful rug gallery in Goreme, Cappadocia and rugs and textiles have been my passion and liife for the 31 years that I have lived in Turkey.A woman rug dealer is still not mainstream but this journey has captivated me with colors &design,techniques and treasures,discovery and knowledge,and above all a deep belief that that as a woman I needed to give a clear voice to the unnamed women who weave their own stories into every unique rug and kilim.

Rather than hear the voice of a polished sales man,I want my clients to learn 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 from a trusted professional.
Enjoy in person when visiting Turkey,
or shop with me online.
I am always happy to help you find the
perfect rug !
follow my instagram feed@Tribalcollectionscarpets.
My website shows only a selection of what I have currently available.When I see a beautiful rug or a rare kilim that is good quality and the right price I just can't resist adding it to my collection,so my stock does change regularly.
Every item in my collections is one-of-a-kind.... and sometimes we are able to find something similar, however sometimes there really is just that one very special and unique piece!
So if you fall in love with a beautiful rug or kilim let us know as soon as you can as we may never find another as beautifully individual.
If you are not able to find the rugs you love online or in my instagram feed, contact me with your required size, color and design needs and I will be happy to work with you on an individual basis.
Trade inquiries welcome.
Just over a decade ago you found hand woven rugs only in dedicated galleries or you purchased one or two overseas as your ultimate travel treasure !
Today you find rugs & kilims everywhere,-from department stores to social media sites. The quality and authenticity varies enormously,from authentic hand woven originals to cheap synthetic machine made copies that can look like the real thing.
So how do you make sure you are getting a good buy ?
First look for trusted rug professionals - they will generally be morel interested in the authenticity of the rug and finding the right rug for you, rather than a quick sale of a 'hip' rug with a funky tag line !

''Ironically good quality handmade rugs
that last for generations can be
a similar price,
or in some cases cheaper
than lesser quality 'on trend' rugs being sold on social media
or in more mainstream home decor stores''
