Happy carpet buyer
Jun 2020 • Solo
I went to Mr. Osman Can’s fascinating workshop in Camlik a few years ago while on a tour of Turkey with a family in my tour group. They were there to buy, I wanted to watch the process, and was not disappointed. The patriarch of the family with whom I went was a native Moroccan man who’d grown up knowing handmade carpet manufacturing, so he wasn’t easily impressed, but after MUCH back and forth, his family bought several rugs. That can be attributed to the fact that they are beautifully made, high craftsmanship, high value HAND TIED rugs. Heirloom quality that won’t go mostly into your vacuum cleaner.

Cut to a few years later. I reach out to Mr. Can to finally purchase a rug, and he couldn’t be kinder with taking photo after photo of rugs in my general price range and preferred color scheme. When I picked out 2 from his website, I managed to pick wildly expensive ones, but he steered me towards similar pieces I could afford. Seriously, he just sent so many options of photos. Finally I picked a beautiful Çanakkale carpet, and he shipped it to me via DHL. It took very little time, even with current Covid19 delays, and we received it today. I couldn’t be happier with the purchase.

Just fabulous

We were reliably informed by locals that this is the best carpet shop in Turkey. We were certainly not disappointed and were able to find the most beautiful rug. Thoroughly recommend.

Top Notch service and quality!
Oct 2019
This business was recommended to me be a friend who lives in the area. First, we were given a tour of the place where they hand make the carpets. They have a desire to produce the highest quality of carpets and use all natural dye. I am very happy with my purchase and the customer service by the owner.

Professional family set-up ...

We were recommended to visit Can carpets. We were picked up by the owner and given a tour of the weaving mill. 7 ladies including the owners wife, all focussed on creating a wonderful pice of carpet art for an upcoming exhibition. Great to see the work happening in a clean, air conditioned environment. All the wool is naturally dyed with local plant based dyes. Designs include takes on traditional carpets as well as new creations/designs. We purchased a lovely carpet for a wall hanging - the colours were stand out. Would recommend. Nice to we were not hassled like we were in Istanbul.

If Osman can, anyone can!

Osman has the most amazing Turkish rugs!!! Turkey has several places where they pretend to have handmade rugs, but these are fake! His is the real deal. He can show you his factory which is in a beautiful setting. We saw the original wool, the wool spun, and the rug creating process. He can take anyone’s picture/photo or design and create a personalized rug. His wife manages the rug makers and is excellent at the craft as well. Very nice, excellent family owned business! I hope to get more rugs from him in the future! If you don’t buy a rug, you will have met a great person.

Authentic, creative, and legendary rug buying experience
Apr 2019 • Friends
I have been working in Turkey for almost 2 years now, and I knew that the right moment to buy a rug/carpet in Turkey would find me at the right time. When I was invited out to Can Carpet by a friend in Izmir, I had a feeling this could be "the one" - and boy was it perfect. This experience had everything that I love about turkish culture: hospitality, pride in the craftsmanship, and connection to tradition with a creative twist towards innovating in the future. Can was great, and I felt honored to have him share the space and story of his craftsmanship. I can't wait to have a reason to take some of my friends and relatives back.

Fantastic carpet buying experience
Apr 2019 • Friends
This was the best carpet shop we'd been to in Turkey. Very reasonably priced, very knowledgeable and all round an enjoyable experience. Instead of the regular apple tea we were offered coffee with chocolate spoons, which was just a lovely touch! Ended up buying 2 carpets for less then other places had quoted for 1. Will reutrn next time we are in Selcuk!

An amazing experience
Jul 2018
From the moment we arrived we were welcomed as a member of the extended family. We learnt about the process of making the magnificent works of art from the hand spinning of the wool and dying utilising completely natural colours. We shared a moment with the weavers viewing the intricate skill required to create the carpets and sat and enjoyed lunch with them. We were then blessed with the opportunity of viewing the finished works in the showroom. The carpets are truly magnificent and yes we did buy one - who could resist. It was shipped home to Australia and arrived 3 days after we returned home.

Turkish Carpet education
May 2018 • Couples
My wife and I were treated to a visit to Can Carpet where we met Osman Can - a true expert in Turkish carpet making. We learned how the wool fibers are dyed, how the colors are made from natural materials, and how the fibers are woven into these incredibly beautiful carpets. Osman was obviously very proud of his work and had a great understanding of the history of Turkish carpets. He was a great host and teacher and we greatly appreciate getting a chance to spend an hour or two at his shop. What a treat for our visit to Turkey!
