How to shop for vintage or turkish rugs

There are lots of inexpensive online sources for vintage rugs.  Most of them are located in Morocco or Turkey where they have been produced and used for hundreds of years.  My favorite place to purchase Turkish or vintage rugs is on Etsy.  I’ve purchased two rugs and had a good experience with both sellers.  The rugs came as they appeared in the photo and were shipped quickly.  That said, it’s always a good idea to check the seller feedback section prior to making a purchase.

  • start by opening up Etsy in your browser.
  • in the search section, type vintage, turkish, or oushak rug.
  • you can also add a filter or narrow your search to show a specific rug size, shape, or color (home and living>rugs>rectangular, etc.)

Five neutral vintage rug options from Etsy

Here is one that I purchased to use as a reference.  The second rug is in my powder room that is waiting for Etsy prints to come from France.  I will share the powder room update when complete!

       4. This is the company I purchased my kitchen rug from.  These are one of a kind so mine is no longer available but this one is equally as              gorgeous.  It’s 100% wool and measures about 10′ by 3′.

       5. I purchased a small rug for my powder room from this company.  I’m waiting for a couple prints that are coming from France to finish              the bathroom so stay tuned for that blog post.  Again, free shipping, rug was as pictured and good experience with the seller.
