After sharing the recent design post on seven items to bring charm and texture into the home, there was a large request for more vintage Turkish rugs! I mentioned in the post how a well-worn Turkish rug brings so much life to a room.
A reason why I chose Turkish rugs is that these ones, in particular, have a short pile to them and have a wonderful over-dyed look. I’ve purchased all 4 rugs in the home now from the same shop and have been incredibly impressed with the quality.
About These Turkish Rugs
A little information on these rugs. I source from the same dealer out of Turkey as I’ve been incredibly happy with the quality and speed in which they’re sent. He sources all of his rugs in Anatolia, Turkey. He takes them, cleans them professionally, cuts the pile short, and then he soaks them in hot water to make them over-dyed.
The patina of the rugs give a room a really great feeling and don’t overwhelm a space. I want my rugs to complement a room, not dominate it.
The other great thing with these rugs is that they’re pretty heavy (especially the area rugs) and don’t move much at all so I haven’t had to purchase any pads (though some may argue that I should!). The short pile also means that when things get spilled on them, it’s still easy to clean — even when our cats get sick on them!
On his shop, he also has some great vintage Kilim Rugs and Herki Runners as well.
All of these rugs below ship free to the U.S. and are sent via DLS — every time I’ve order they have come in around four-five business days.

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
