  • Thank you very much to Hamsa. He is the best. We love our new carpet. We live in the Caribbean but for my new winter house we will buy more carpets only from Lion’s Rugs. Just perfect!!!  more »
  • We went to Istanbul for a very short weekend with no thoughts to buy a carpet. And by occasion got into Lion’s shop. The designs and the quality of products almost pushed us for a spontaneous...  more »
  • We happened to live in a boutique hotel just across the shop. We decided to pop in to take a look at the shop. The owner Mr Aslan was very warmth and welcoming. He was keen to show us the range of...  more »

  • The two guys were very knowledgeable, honest, and good natured. We enjoyed finding out all about wool, silk, double and single knot, sheen, age, provenance etc. I felt badly to not have space or budget for a carpet and really think they (and others) should change their business model to a cultural experience that they sell to groups at specific times of the day. They could share their knowledge of this important part of Turkish culture and their tea, treats and whatever else at a fair price. If people want to buy a carpet then, great! And no bad feelings when they don’t.
  • The quality of the rugs is very high, but I felt pressured to buy, by a rather insistent and pushy salesperson/owner. This is not always the case in his uncle, and some stores are content to let you look and make your own decisions, but here I felt rather pressured. crew, he was doing his job, and trying to close a sale. I don't hold that instinct. But I don't like it when "no thank you" is not gracefully taken for an answer.
  • The owner triples the price depending on your currency. Absolutely rubbery.
  • I found the men at Sedir helpful and kind. Especially Yusuf Ekinci
  • Fraud. Don't buy absolute. In about 4000 Turkish Lira will sell carpets, less toilet paper. Better I swear to Allah, and left the shop. Self-proclaimed "Turkey not only 26 people rug Appraiser" vomit is a famous con artist. Caution! scam! Do not buy it absolutely!
