We are so pleased with the beautiful large rug we purchased from the San Rafael location. The showroom is magnificent with rugs of unusual beauty and craftsmanship. Ogi not only made us feel comfortable and confident in this big decision but came to our house with several large rugs we were considering to view and be confident that our selection
was the right one for our space.
There was no pressure to buy. We were welcomed in the showroom and learned about the rugs we liked. This is the place to go to enhance your home and find the perfect rug to warm your home and experience art and craftsmanship. Mark K.
When I stopped by Istanbul Rug in San Rafael, I didn't think I'd actually be able to make a choice, despite the fact that they have a large selection of beautiful rugs. I didn't know much about rugs and I wasn't sure what I wanted. Ogi gave me some great tips on how to narrow it down. He and his staff very patiently went through the whole selection to help find the rugs that were good possibilities based on the comments I made. I took several rugs home and found that one was perfect for the space.
Shopping here was fun, and I learned a lot. I'm looking forward to going back to find a rug for my bedroom.
Buying a rug is not something to be done quickly. We went to Istanbul Rug in San Rafael to look. We took our time and Ogee and his team were so incredibly patient with us. Not only did they NOT pressure us into purchasing something, they took time to consult with us and guide us toward the best options. They came to our home with multiple rugs to test on multiple occasions and helped us to pick the right size and complementary color rug. They made it a super pleasant experience. We purchased two large rugs from them. We highly recommend Istanbul Rug for their selection and esteemed customer service.
Thrilled with the Kazak rug I just purchased! Ogi and team were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They were even kind enough to let me to take the rug home to trial before purchasing. I highly recommend Istanbul Rug for their large selection of beautiful, high-quality rugs, fair prices and impeccable customer service.
This store is a rare find.
We sent Istanbul Rug four high quality Persian rugs for cleaning
The rugs were returned both crystal clean and well repaired;
in far better condition than after previous cleanings.
I think I can say you are not likely to find a better company for
cleaning and repair of Persian rugs.
I can also say that we looked at some very high quality Turkish
rugs at the store, silk rugs with hundreds of knots per square
inch, understandably expensive but fairly priced. Turkish rugs
are not quite as expensive as they used to be because of the
dramatic decline in the Turkish lira.
In short, this is a very reputable Rug store, and just great
for cleaning and repair.
These guys were better than professional they were very friendly too. I had minimal knowledge about rugs and they gave me 101 and didn't make me feel silly and were happy to show me LOTs of rugs. When I was on the fence about my choice they brought the rug to my house the next day so I could I see it in the space and even brought additional similar rugs. They even helped me move some furniture. I'd absolutely go to them again and you should too. CASH is king
Ogi, Ali and Erol are truly passionate professionals that inspire their customers through unparalleled sincerity, education and integrity.
We stopped by the San Rafael showroom with the intention of only viewing the inventory of rugs on display. Once we entered, we were greeted by Ogi and his contagious personality. After taking his time to explain to us in fine detail about his passion for the craft of rug making and the history and meaning behind these works of art, he and Erol proceeded to "leaf through" tens of rugs for our viewing pleasure. One by one, Ogi and Erol explained the true meaning behind each motif and offered in depth detail about the materials used to produce the rugs. They took their time with no expectation that we would make a purchase. Of course, they are there to sell, but never once did we feel compelled or pressured to commit to buying. After choosing a handful of rugs that we thought may go well in our home, Ogi and Erol laid each one out for us to view, walk on, feel with our hands and again they took the time to explain the history and meaning behind each one. As if that were not enough, Ogi then offered to bring them to our home that evening so that we could get a sense of how the rugs would look and feel.
Needless to say, we ended up purchasing two rugs (one of which Ogi stated we would end up buying after seeing a picture of our living room). These extraordinary pieces have added a warm sense of completion and elegance to our home that we could not have imagined.
Thank you Ogi, Ali and Erol, we sincerely appreciate you!!

This week I bought two gorgeous rugs from Ogi at Istanbul Rugs. I visited several other stores and compared prices and quality. I ended up returning to Istanbul Rug because the price I was quoted was fair (and better than the other options I found while shopping around). Ogi and his crew treated me with respect and didn't pressure me. Thank you!
This rug is beautiful! It's actually Arts and Craft style which I love. Ogi brought it to my home, put a pad underneath, and it feels very cozy on my feet. I've gotten many compliments on it already. I would shop here again. Ogi and his brother were very Covid conscious. I felt comfortable having them inside my house.
I recently purchased an antique Caucasion rug from Istanbul Rugs in San Rafael. I could not have been happier with the buying process which ended with me acquiring a stunning rug that looks great in my home. Ogi and his staff took the time to further my education in antique rugs and made the whole process easy and fun. They have a beautiful store well stocked with a wide variety of wonderful rugs. If you are in the market, I highly recommend stop by.
