Material

The materials used in the carpets that decorate your home or valuable places come from the natural beauties that mother nature gives us. We respect the environment, protect and develop the old and produce these unique works in 100% natural ways. We are honored with this. We use sheep wool in our carpets. The process of the woolen thread: Sharing ➔ Brushing ➔ Washing ➔ Spinning ➔ Yarn

Sharing & Brushing

A sustainable social development is only possible with people. Human and human labor is the essence of everything. We work at various levels, both locally and globally, to ensure that our high demands on human rights and working conditions are met. Employment, occupational health and security, diversity and equality of opportunity are among our most basic principles, and continuous improvement and training are our priority.

People are the key to our success in the art of carpet and weaving. Therefore, we constantly train talented, determined and knowledgeable employees, make this art live with them, and work hard both locally and globally to retain themselves.

We achieve our mutual goals by working resolutely and decisively with all our business partners and customers without compromising our core values.

Washing

As in every part of the world, we are constantly investing and cooperating with state and non-governmental organizations to keep the old art of carpet weaving alive, especially in Anatolia and Mesopotamia.

We are working hard to continue the sheep farming activities in the region and to turn their precious wool into oriental carpets. At the same time, we continue to develop our business continuously for the survival of the weaving craft.

We use both old techniques and new methods to have the unique and incredible natural colors you see in oriental and modern carpets without using any chemicals. We cooperate with universities in this regard.

We publish some publications and magazines to introduce the art and culture of carpet to the new generation and to keep it alive all over the world.
