    The best of the best!
    We have purchased carpets from Ali for over 30 years! We have referred him to friends, family and travelers on our frequent trips to Turkey. Ali has an extensive knowledge about the carpets and a true pride and respect for the artisanship and the history that they hold. When he invites you in to look and offers you tea, do not worry about being pressured to buy. The carpets sell themselves once you see and understand them. Just worry about having enough room in your home to put them because he has a beautiful collection in all price ranges.
    Hi Guys, Thank you so much for your wonderful rewiev and thank you so much for being great friends for over 30 years. It was wonderful to see you again and do the Eastern Turkey tour together, that was something that I will never forget in my life. Stay healty until next time we meet and enjoy your new Sultan Rug. :) Best regards. Ali

    Authentic Silk Rug Purchase
    After quickly deciding we couldn’t leave Goreme without at-least exploring one of the many rug shops in the area, in hopes in finding a beautiful authentic Silk Rug, we were recommend in only one local business, Sultan Carpets. We immediately went to the address provided, and upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by a lovely staff member and introduced to the owner Ali…. After talking briefly about what we were looking for and our budget, Ali took us to one of the many rooms full of beautiful rugs. He quickly pulled out and displayed a few options, within our perimeters, so many to choose from!! Ali enthusiastically explained the origins of the patterns etc, and what each rug was made from. Slowly we dwindled down the options to a few favourites. At no time did we feel any pressure to purchase a rug. We decided to go away and come back in half an hour with a decision. Ali was more than happy to put aside the few rug options. Needless to say, we purchased a genuine silk rug!! So happy with our purchase. Thank you Ali for your professionalism and insight to the rug industry. We would be happy to recommend Ali at Sultan Carpets to any family and friends visiting Goreme. Mark and Deb from Australia 🇦🇺
    Thank you guys so much for your great rewiev I really appreciated. It was a pleasure to meet you both and do business with you. I am so glad that you like your rug and hope you enjoy it forever. It will be great to see you again if you ever come back to Cappadocia. Best regards Ali

    Learned about carpet making and found a nice piece for home
    Not only we found a beautiful carpet but also learned a great deal about the carpet-making techniques, meaning of the patterns on them and the art of producing carpets. The team is amazing. They informed us sufficiently and used a nice elimination method to decide what we want to take home. (It’s hard for us to choose)
    It was such a big pleasure to meet you guys and do business with you. I am so glad that you enjoyed your shopping experience with us. I hope you enjoy your rug forever and hopefully our roads cross one day again. All the best. Ali

    Great!
    Sultan carpets, which is one of the places to see in Göreme, offers insatiable beauties with the interest and interest of Owl (Baykuş) Mustafa. The presentation of both the history and the quality of the unique artifacts inside was unmatched. I thank them. You must see
    Thank you so much for your nice thoughts abut us, we really appreciate it! We are so happy to hear that you had a good time in our shop, we will be happy to see you back in the future. Ali

    Wonderful rug shop in Central Turkey (Goreme)!
    Ali and Mustafa were wonderful to work with! Knowledgeable, kind and fair. Great prices, and A+ rugs without any hassle or aggressive sales pitch. I only shopped for a small (3x5) rug but they treated me like a valued customer. Totally unlike the rug retailers in Istanbul. I highly recommend you trust them with your next hand knitted Turkish rug purchase!

    Favorite Experience in Cappadocia
    The photography shoot at Sultan Carpet was our favorite (and unplanned) experience in Cappadocia, as we have traveled to over forty countries and this was the most unique experience in Cappadocia. We did Balloon ride over Cappadocia as well, but did not enjoy it as much as the photography shoot with the carpets and lanterns. I also enjoyed meeting Ali who use to live in my current hometown. I would strongly recommend booking a time at Sultan Carpet to take pictures.
    It was great to meet some one from where I used to live many years ago! This is why they say small world I think :) Thank you so much for your nice thoughts about us, I am so glad that your experience was good. We hope to see you in the futere again. Ali

    Our experience at Sultan Carpet
    The owner of Sultan Carpets obviously and absolutely loves what he does. He gave our group an educational overview of the different types of kilims and carpets. He explained how they are made and what some of the symbols mean. He never once put any pressure on anyone to purchase something. We did end up buying a carpet because the price and quality was far beyond anything we could purchase in the States. The owner stayed in contact with us until our carpet was delivered to our home. I highly recommend this business.
    Thank you so much for your wonderful review, I really appracited! It was great to meet you and your friends and do business with you, it was a great experience. I hope you guys all enjoy your rugs. who cnows maybe our roads cross one day again. All the best Ali

    High quality of rugs
    I had the most fun looking at all the beautiful carpets offered at Sultan Carpets. The staff was accommodating and considerate. I purchased a rug, which FedEx delivered two days after I returned --- just as we had planned. It is a beautiful addition to my other carpets. I highly recommend the store.

    A treasure trove in Goreme
    We planned on buying carpets in Turkiye, but not necessarily in Goreme. That was until we wandered into Sultans carpets. Ali and Mustafa were friendly hosts who had carpets that matched all of our size requirements. There was no hard sell just friendly banter. The more we bought the better the discounts. Even a thank you drink after our purchase to celebrate our new treasures. Delivered from Goreme to my door in Melbourne Australia in 8 days. I'm glad we wandered into the shop.

    Great Service
    Having previously purchased 2 rugs in October in the shop, a third was purchased after contacting Ali on my return to Australia. The service via email was fantastic and took less than a week to receive another wonderful rug. Highly recommend visiting the shop.
    Thank you so much for your nice words, we really appreciate it! I was great to do business with you again, I am sure you will enjoy your new rug sam as first two you had in summer. Ones again happy new year, I hope new year brings you all you wish. Best regards Ali

We happened across Sultan Carpet on a recent trip through Turkey, on our stop at Goreme and Cappadocia. We knew before we started our trip that we were planning to buy some authentic Turkish Carpets as the selection in US was either lacking or way overpriced.

My wife and her friend went the first day on their own, and Ali and his staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, as well as having a lot of inventory in various styles and levels of quality. From inexpensive to very expensive. They ended up purchasing 2 round “medallion” carpets, 2 long runner carpets, and 2 wall tapestry pieces. Most in what’s called Bamboo Silk, a newer hybrid material that has the feel of 100% silk carpets, but at a fraction of the price, and better than similar style wool carpets.

I went with my wife the second day and we ended up purchasing 2 larger area rugs (approx 8x10ft) and another round medallion carpet. Also in the Bamboo Silk variety.

The prices are reasonable for what is offered and priced in US Dollars, including ground shipping to your home location.

We know where we will be going our next visit to Turkey to add some additional carpets and rugs to our home decor.

Sultan Carpets was one of my favorite experiences during my time in Cappadocia! The owner is extremely welcoming and has such a passion for what he does. His carpets are absolutely stunning, and the upstairs area for taking photos is like something out of a dream. Would definitely recommend checking out this experience while you’re in town.

I went to the shop because I had stayed at the hotel of one of the partners, and therefore had already a good impression. When I went, the three partners, Mehmed, Ali and Mustafa welcomed me. Despite having said from the beginning that he was not going to buy anything, Mustafa took the time and dedication to not only show me various carpets, but also to explain the different types, knots, etc. Extremely interesting, especially for me who knew nothing about it. If I decide to buy a carpet in Turkey, it will surely be from Sultan Carpets. Very good service.

Ali and his staff were amazing hosts while our group of 3 couples shopped most of the afternoon through their beautiful store in Goreme. While you see carpet stores everywhere throughout Turkey, what set Sultan Carpet apart from the others was not only the lack of any pressure to buy (even during the pandemic, when business was almost non-existant!), but the honesty and information that was provided about their products. They were up front and honest about the pricing and quality of the carpets. If someone in our group liked a mass produced, machine made carpet, they were told that the carpet was indeed a factory made product, not a handmade one, and why that the carpet was much less inexpensive than others. The wealth of knowledge that they held regarding the designs and dating of carpets was truly impressive! At no point did we feel we were being told anything just to make a sale.

We ended up purchasing about 10 carpets among us and had them all shipped back to the US. Everything was packaged perfectly and arrived with no damage. We absolutely loved the entire experience and it was truly a highlight of our Turkey trip! We have no hesitation to recommend Ali and his store to anyone! We love our carpets and will always have them as a reminder of our visit.

I was visiting Goreme to see the beautiful landscape with no intention of buying a carpet at all... That was until I came across this most beautiful store. The people that work there are so knowledgeable of their craft and really immerse you into the history of each type of carpet, including where they are made, how they are made, which materials are used, who actually makes them. But not only do they possess the highest quality of carpet wisdom and hospitality, but they also have the most incredible carpets! I was completely in awe of them all, however, I was concerned I wouldn't have enough room in my luggage to take one home... BUT need not worry! They showed me how they pack a decent-sized carpet into small hand luggage (included for free). I chose to go with a gorgeous MUT carpet and since I have been traveling in Turkey for another 2 weeks, out of curiosity I have been visiting other carpet shops, and although they too have good selections, they do not come close to the range and quality that Sultan has.

If you are in the Cappadocia region and in the market for carpets, I highly recommend that your shopping experience lead you to Ali and Mustafa at Sultan Carpets.

My husband and I recently stayed in Uchisar and our hotel provided us the name of this business just a short ride away in Goreme. Your taxi will drop you off into an open air living room decorated from roof to floor with brilliantly colored lanterns and rugs - a kaleidoscope of patterns which meet you from every angle.

Just down the stairs at basement level you will find their intimate showroom where the team settles you in with a cup of apple tea and help to select the perfect carpets dependent on size, color variant, price. The team is expert in their trade having been in business for over 30 years and helped us to select a handful of rugs for our home.

They complete the experience by expediting your purchases using Fedex to deliver to your doorstep within just a few weeks.

Many thanks to you both, Ali and Mustafa, for helping us to bring a piece of your lovely country into our home and giving us an experience to last a lifetime!

Wow! We had a great time visiting Sultan’s carpets! We were greeted upon entrance and offered tea. We looked at a wonderful assortment of carpets of all colors, sizes and materials. We settled on a beautiful blue carpet, which was simple to fold up and tote with us on our journey! We were then offered a free professional photo shoot in the most stunning room filled with carpets and decor. Check out one of the gorgeous photos. Overall, it was a fabulous experience that you must try while in Cappadocia!!

Wonderful shop with a large selection of beautiful carpets. Mustafa was very welcoming, knowledgeable, and passionate. He provided a lot of interesting history about the carpets and was very respectful about our price range. Also, a great spot for care free photography. If you are in the area I highly recommend stopping in and enjoying Sultan Carpets.

Ali was one of the friendliest, and transparent owner. He was very helpful with selecting our carpet, explaining the history, and took the time to showed us many different ones until we were satisfied. The carpets were such high quality and we are excited to have purchased it here.

If you are ever in Cappadocia, definitely go here to purchase a carpet and you will no be disappointed.

We had an amazing experience at Sultan Carpet! From start to finish, it was an absolute pleasure working with Ali. He spent the better part of an afternoon helping us find the perfect rug. Throughout that process, we never felt any pressure, and he really cared about helping us find a special piece we’d never forget. Honestly, working with Ali was one of the most memorable experiences during our time in Turkey. Most of all, this will not be our last purchase from him.

If you’re thinking of buying a Turkish rug, this is the best place to go. You get a fair deal from a really awesome business owner.

Thanks again, Ali! We love looking at our piece of art each day
