My wife and I first met Hakan when we were posted to Istanbul for three years back in 1999-2002. Not novices to carpets, we took our time considering which carpets would look best in our home there and also back here in DC. We had plenty of vendors to choose from but in the end, it was only Hakan from whom we purchased. And the reason was simple - Hakan provided us solid, knowledgeable advice and expertise with absolutely no pressure to purchase the carpets we had brought home to try out, often for 4-6 months at a time. His prices were eminently reasonable and we knew we were getting quality, beautiful pieces. And then there is the fact that Hakan is a good guy, fun and who clearly enjoys his job and the people he comes in contact with from around the world. I spent many a Saturday afternoon in his shop, enjoying endless cups of tea, a terrific lunch (Adana kebap a favorite), and watching him sell his wares. Buy a carpet from Hakan - it's the smart choice.
