    The place to go for your carpets
    OMG I love this place. Went to a couple in the city but settled with Dowry. Ozgur made me feel so much at home and taught me so much about Turkish carpets. I was able to leave with a beautiful silk carpet at a fair price to me.
    Thank you so much for kind words It was my pleasure to make business with you Use all the best days your beautiful carpet Best regards Özgür

    Gorgeous carpet store in Cappadocia!
    This is a fantastic Turkish carpet store in the heart of Goreme, Cappadocia, run by a lovely family! It has a great collection of authentic kilims including prized antique ones. We were greeted by the store owner, Ozgur, a lovely gentleman, exuding Turkish hospitality - and we had a great time talking with him as we sipped lovely Turkish tea! Ozgur patiently showed us a vast range of kilims and thanks to him, we have a gorgeous antique kilim to take home as a great memory of our visit to Turkey!

    Excellent Shop with very friendly owners
    We found Dowry Carpet quite by accident and wandered in, not to buy, but ended up with a beautiful handmade wool carpet for our home. The owner, Uzgar, welcomed us with great hospitality and did not pressure us in any way, unlike our experiences in Istanbul. He spent time educating us on how to identify a “real” hand stitched rug, as well as on the different aspects and symbolism of the rug designs themselves. It was an excellent experience overall and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Very friendly and helpful owner
    If you’re looking for a typical Cappadocia carpet, you’re at the right place. The owner really took his time to advice me. I eventually chose a vintage carpet and I am very happy with my purchase. I cam highly recommend it.

    Exceptional Carpets and Genuine Service at Dowry Carpet Company
    I recently purchased a beautiful carpet from Dowry Carpet Cappadocia and couldn’t be happier. The vibrant colors transformed my living room, adding a welcoming atmosphere. The quality is exceptional, with intricate patterns and a luxurious feel. What made the experience unique was Özgür, the owner, who is honest and genuine. Unlike other stores where I’ve felt pressured or overcharged, Özgür provided a transparent and trustworthy service. He ensured I got exactly what I wanted without feeling ripped off. Dowry offers a variety of stunning carpets and personalized, honest service - highly recommend!!!!

    BEST CARPET SHOP IN CAPPADOCIA
    I have visited numerous carpet stores in Cappadocia, but this one was by far the best! The owners were incredibly patient, allowing me to browse through countless carpets at my own pace. Their English proficiency was excellent, and they provided extensive information about the fabric and design of each rug. There was no pressure to make a purchase, which made the experience even more enjoyable. They offered me a fantastic price on two carpets and even arranged for shipping to my home. The entire experience was delightful, and the carpets themselves are of exceptional quality and value. I felt a great deal of trust in their service and would highly recommend this store to anyone in search of the perfect carpet to take home. 😊

    Fun experience of shopping
    I popped in with my family just to have a look at the beautiful rugs and carpets hanging outside. We were made to feel so welcome and had Turkish tea brought to us and bottles of water. We ended up looking through many different rugs and bought 2. The family who run the shop are so kind and genuine, and made this a really lovely authentic experience. The rugs were shipped via fedex and arrived shortly after we returned to the UK, so very fast.

    Amazing shop & great owner!
    I went to the shop with my wife and son for my parents' gift, and it was my best choice to visit here. The owner was very trustworthy and friendly. Also, he knew what he is selling to the customers. Also, that led us easy to make a decision. We bought 2 carpets and shipped to my country very soon and those were same one we purchased. My parents are very satisfied with it and I am pleased to see it. I highly recommend to visit this shop and you will like it.

    Amazing experience and friendly staff
    This was my first experience being in Turkey and buying a rug. They had so many beautiful rugs to choose from! The staff were very kind and helpful and not pushy in any way! They allowed me to take my time and choose the perfect one. It was shipped so fast! I got it as soon as we came home from my trip. We absolutely love it! It’s perfect for our room and so soft and luxurious. We would recommend stopping in if you are ever in Cappadocia?! Note if you are flying make sure you keep your receipt and claim it through customs. They will sort it out right there and you will pay none or a lot less duty. Otherwise you will be charged duty by the delivery company when you get home. I made this mistake!

    Owner is honest and kind
    The owner is honest and kind. He explained how to differentiate real wool carpet and man- made fake fabric in details and tested it in front of us. We believe he is very trustworthy and the products are of god quality. In the end, we bought 2 wool carpets hand-made and the owner gave me a cushion cover for free. We recommend this shop indeed :)

Big thanks to the lovely gentleman at Dowry for my kilim. I'm a student and on a budget, he seemed to be very forthright and honest, providing so much knowledge about the history of his shop and the carpets. Thanks a lot!

Dowry carpet is not just a carpet shop, for me its one the attraction in Cappadocia. This one should not be missed. Ozgur is a great host and his carpets are to die for! They are unique, from old designs to modern designs, each is a work of art with a beautiful stories engrave on it. Whether you are looking to buy a carpet or not, Ozgur’s place is worth a visit to look at the variety of carpets and to learn more about the story behind carpet making in Turkey. Ozgur spent a long time showing us various rugs and telling us the story about them and also good tips on what to look for when buying rugs. And ofcourse their will always be my favourite apple tea served. Quality service with a wide variety of friendly service is a store that I want everyone to come and visit with peace of mind.

Lovely shop with a beautiful selection of carpets, including the highest quality prayer rugs I found in Turkey. The owner is kind, sincere, and not remotely pushy as a salesperson. Items were reasonably priced. There was plenty of inventory but not so much that it felt overwhelming. The space is small enough to feel intimate without feeling crowded. A wonderful experience and I left with an absolutely gorgeous rug.

We loved our experience at Dowry Carpet!

My boyfriend and I stopped by in the evening originally just looking for a table cloth, and Özgür offered to show us his carpets even though we had said up front that we weren’t looking to buy one. He took us to a room filled with beautiful carpets and showed us different styles and explained how to spot the differences in quality. The shop was clean and well organized.

While we were thinking about whether we wanted to get a carpet or not after seeing how beautiful they were, and then which carpet we wanted, Özgür was very respectful and left the room so we could talk to eachother in private without feeling pressured to buy anything. This was the biggest green flag for us!! He also made tea for us which was a nice touch. When we did decide to purchase a carpet, we were able to pay in a mix of USD and TL, and his brother drove us to our hotel and back so we could get our money.

Özgür was able to help us find an affordable price for a bamboo silk carpet we absolutely loved, and he added the original table cloth we were looking at as a gift!

He also sent us the tracking number for our shipped carpet (low international shipping cost because of the pandemic!), along with instructions for how to care for and clean the carpet.

We had such a fun experience and left really excited about our new carpet! We will be back when we get a bigger house to put more carpets in.

We went in to just see carpets with no intention of buying but we ended up buying ourselves the most beautiful souvenir from Cappadocia. We couldn’t resist owning an absolutely beautiful carpet with impeccable quality. If you do visit Cappadocia, do make the time to visit dowry because you will not find such quality elsewhere. (Even our cat loved the carpet! ) I must also say what made our experience memorable is the friendliness of the people who work there and how accommodating they are. If you do visit Cappadocia, i highly recommend that you do make the time to pass by Dowry carpets.

We were walking around Goreme when it started raining and went into this wonderful shop where we met Özgür. He was so helpful and willing to show us so many different types of rugs and carpets. While we only intended on purchasing a small item initially, we saw a beautiful silk carpet on display in the shop, and ultimately decided we would love to have it for our home. There was no pressure whatsoever from Özgür and we had a really nice experience. We also felt the prices were much more reasonable than other places we had been. He arranged for the silk carpet to be shipped to Ireland and it arrived on time and in perfect condition via FedEx. It will always be a great memory for us of our visit to Cappodocia and we’re so happy to have this in our home here in Ireland. Thank you Özgür!

Özgür is amazing! We visited Kapdokya with the intention of buying a rug or two, and after visiting Dowry Carpets we walked out with five. Özgür has an amazing eye and knows just what to suggest based on individual taste. HIGHLY recommend shopping here - I grew up in Kapdokya and can honestly say this is my favorite carpet shop I’ve been in.

Came here with my whole family after reading so much good reviews about the shop. We were welcomed very warmly and even though we said that we did not want to buy a carpet, we were shown many carpets to appreciate. In the end, we ended up buying a 2X3m silk carpet at a very affordable price (I suspect due to it being an older design). Price is inclusive of freight back to Singapore. Wleverything was good and we received the Tracking number thru Whatsapp and we received the carpet on at our doorstep about 6 days later. What a great pruchase and experience.

We had such an enjoyable experience shopping here, we'd been to a few other stores around Cappadocia and found Dowry carpets to be fair on price and so willing to share knowledge. Ozgur was patient and answered all of our questions. We hadn't intended to buy any rugs but walked away with 3 shipped all the way to Australia.
