Please note that we have a time difference with the USA
of 7 h East coast and 10 h West coast. The company is
registered with the Chamber of Trade and Commerce in
Kayseri, with the Tax Office Erciyes in Kayseri and with
the Turkish Exporters Federation. Documents can be
presented upon request. Founded in 1997 by myself. I have
a partner who joined me in 1998, Mrs. Gulistan Belli. We
are dealing only with Turkish rugs and Kelims. The rugs
and Kelims are new or used ones. I am not dealing with
antiques, but with old rugs and Kelims. The provenance of
the rugs and Kelims are Kayseri, Yahyali, Taspinar,
Konya, Sultanhani, Milas, Malatya, in short: all over
Turkey. We also have the manufactured Kars type rugs
which appeal to a lot of customers due to their pastel
hues and bold designs. I can call myself a specialist in
the Nomad rugs, the so called "Yoruks". I do
not deal with silk rugs, but with silk Kelims. However, I
know some good silk rug dealers. firstname.lastname@example.org.

www.sahcarpets.com email@example.com JBOC: I got the following from an old and trusted
have a personal favor to ask. There is an old, dear
friend here in Istanbul, an honest (honest!) and
honorable dealer who very much deserves to be on your
dealer list. I don't know why I have not suggested this
before, but I know that others on your list can also
vouch for him. He has worked with many Americans over the
years - (4 dealers on my list), etc. It would be a great
thrill for him to be included among your other dealers.
We were looking at your site yesterday and he became a
bit sad that he was not listed. I told him I would
ask, on his behalf. His heart and his intentions are as
clean as they come. He sells on rug rabbit and is
finishing a website very soon, within days. His name is
Necati Kokoglu, and he works with his brother,
Ahmet. They have helped me and my all friends whom I
have sent to him, so much. They are my dear
friends, and would be indebted to you forever if they
were to see their business listed on spongobongo. I
guarantee their character.
