About Us


We are based in Stillorgan, County Dublin, in the Republic of Ireland, and have a large stock of high-quality Turkish, Persian, Afghan and Caucasian rugs, carpets and runners, as well as a superb selection of Turkish and Caucasian kilims.


We offer new, used, semi-antique  and antique pieces in all of these categories, and are continually getting new pieces into stock. All of our used rugs are washed and thoroughly cleaned, with any necessary repairs carried out, before being offered for sale.


We are also the sole Irish retailer of the renowned Turkish carpets by Has Hali.


We stock a wide selection of modern design rugs, including the full De Poortere Deco range,  Indian hand-tufted wool rugs, and Nepalese hand-knotted rugs.
