Gallery Ararat

Hi, I'm Rohat. I'm an attorney practicing with my law firm in Istanbul. The reason I'm here is because of the exclusive and eclectic antique rug collection of my dad, Burhan Kartal (as in picture). Burhan has collected some of the rarest and highest quality rugs and kilims over the past 40 years. Here I will be posting remarkable pieces from his collection. Please feel free to contact us. Thank you. Instagram: @rugsbygalleryararat
