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.

Ali is just the best!! He welcomed us with such a big heart and friendliness without any pressure of us buying anything that we got stuck in his unique store filled with the most beautiful selection of carpets ever seen - for hours! :D The amount of pieces he got is immense and you can just find anything you can imagine.
I got one carpet for my mother as well and back home she totally fell in love with it, she loved the colors and the quality (all carpets come with a certificate) that she wanted two more for her house. I got in touch with Ali and he sent me a choice of carpets in my mothers color & price range and they got delivered within like a week! (turkey-germany)
Attached I ll put you some pictures of our new beautys.

Thanks a lot Ali!! Warm Greetings to Goreme :)

I had the loveliest afternoon with Mustafa at Sultan Carpet! He was so knowledgeable about all the rugs and carpets, I learned so much. Even though I did not walk away with a rug, I would 110% recommend Sultan Carpets for their service and professional. They would be my first choice for purchasing any.
Thank you so much for the delightful carpet shopping experience and the many apple teas! I will surely visit again.

We had planned on shopping for a Turkish rug during our second trip to Turkey and had the good fortune of stumbling upon Sultan Carpet’s at their side entrance that serves as an Instagram show room, full of colorful carpets, lamps and lights. There we met Ali Sakarya and his employee’s Mustafa and Sebo . Ali invited us to look at his rug display area on the main floor. We were immediately impressed with the cleanliness and professionalism of the area. Ali has quality rugs filing the entire price spectrum. He made us some Turkish coffee and we started our viewing of the many high-quality carpets available in his store. We found one with the color and design perfect for our living area but not the right size, the hall carpet we liked was great but needed to be 18’ long. Ali contacted his sources in Istanbul and forwarded pictures of potential carpets that we liked but wanted to view in person. He had several choices of each expedited to his store in Goreme over the weekend. From these we selected two that are absolutely perfect for our hall and living area. Through the whole process we felt no pressure and Ali eagerly shared his extensive knowledge and passion for the art and history of Turkish carpets.
We had the good fortune of meeting Ali’s family. We love our choice in rugs and now our new friends Ali and his family.
No question, if you’re interested in a Turkish carpet, seek out Ali and team at Sultan Carpet in Goreme Turkey (Cappadocia). You will not regret it!

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 planning to Sultan Carpets after reading the reviews they had over here, and I was NOT disappointed.

I was greeted by Ali and Mustafa the first day I got there, they first choice I have to make on their shop is between a Turkish tea, or an Apple tea.

They talked me through the ranges of carpets types, qualities, and prices. He wasn't hesitated to unroll any of his carpets to give me choices of which one carpets suits me the best, the price are very very reasonable, InsyaAllah the carpets I got will suits the house really fine.

Ali's English is exceptional, I know so many Turkish around Göreme speaks English but there is something different with him, turns out he spent time in America for 5 years which explains a lot, him and Mustafa were very honest about their business, they are very comfortable to talk to, a genuine carpet shop runs by genuine carpet lover persons. Me as a moslem brother is proud to see our brother have such dedication and honesty, a very good example of Turkish hospitality!

I really wanna go back to Göreme, and with God's will if I do, I'll definitely visit Sultan Carpet again!

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.

My wife and I visited sultan carpets in Cappadociaas we heard they had a studio where we can take beautiful pictures around the lamps and carpets. I have to say they are super friendly and we met the owner he we was really happy to explain us how it all works and ended up hiring the photographer and he took beautiful couple shots and individual as well. Definitely would recommend.

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

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.
