Product Information

Are your rugs hand-woven? +

Yes. All the carpets we produce are completely natural and hand-woven carpets. The production processes of carpets with unique patterns, which are produced with natural materials and completely traditional methods, are followed constantly. Weaving a carpet on a loom is a delicate process. It requires attention and effort. Considering the locations of the villages in this geography, following the process on-site is at least as difficult as weaving a carpet. We are proud to succeed. We always invite our customers to our workshops and Malatya center to experience our all processes, and we are happy to share our expertise and production.
