Cappadocia i,s well known as a famous tourism region but  before the boom in tourism carpet weaving was famous in both the Cappadocian villages of Avanos and Urgup.Carpet weaving started in the area around 1700s.and continued until the late 1970's, though only approx 250 looms operated in the area in total 

Avanos rugs are always wool on wool and use a distintive medallion design with multiple borders 

Due to the small number of Avanos rugs woven they have become very collectable on todays market .

What People Say - 


Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
