The Motif Collection, owned and operated by Hamit Bakir and his brother Mustafa, is the best little carpet shop in Istanbul. We first met Hamit two years ago on our first visit to Istanbul and purchased three lovely carpets from him which we have enjoyed immensely. Hamit hand picks every carpet for sale in his shop, so the quality and variety are outstanding. He is quite an expert and can tell you the story behind every carpet including its origin, the meaning of the design, and the dyes used. You will find Hamit to be low key, very patient, and helpful during the decision making process. You will not feel pressured, and you will not have to "haggle" over the price. His high quality carpets are all reasonably priced. On our most recent visit, we purchased additional pieces which arrived only a few days after we returned to the US. The Motif Collection is the place to go if you want a pleasant shopping experience.
