I bought a few rugs from these guys about 7 years back. Didn't spend much money at all so I'm unsure as to why I'd be targeted. I did what most people do which is visit the store, enjoy the experience and the education of...More

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed coming to Nakkas and are loving your rug! We hope you come to visit lovely Istanbul again, and stop by Nakkas for a visit.
This is a wonderful place to visit to learn about Turkish rugs. They have a large selection and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Be prepared to negotiate because I believe with the Turkish economy being what it is, they have flexibility in their pricing....More
We have been purchasing rugs at Nakkas for the last ten years. Any time we come here we are amazed by the choice and the quality, accompanied by good prices and wonderful service.
We come to Istanbul once or twice a year and have seen...More
Knowledgeable friends, who had purchased from Nakkas one of the most beautiful carpets I have ever seen, referred us when we were in Istanbul--and we purchased two small carpets we love. Several years later, to our amazement, we received a call from the company about...More
If you want to do your carpet shopping in a bazaar-like atmosphere, Nakkas isn't your choice. That is probably the only reason not to go there. The store is big and impressive, there are like different "worlds" for different carpets.
They are truly professionals and...More

If you are in Istanbul and are in the market for a real Turkish handmade rug I recommend you go visit Zeynel Unlusoy. He will greet you, bring you to his showroom on the second floor, offer you some Turkish tea and explain the difference...More
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
