Decided to walk into this shop last minute before leaving Goreme back to Istanbul. With no prior knowledge about how to spot high quality, genuine carpets/kilms, I was hesitant to enter any shop during my stay in Turkey. The staff at Rose Carpet Shop were helpful, incredibly knowledgeable and not in the least pushy when it came to purchasing. They were enthusiastic about teaching me about the various types, meanings and uses for their rugs and other handwoven items. Everything was well priced and I even left with a sheet that described each symbol on my camel bag, which is now hanging on my wall as an art piece. (I did not end up buying a rug as I was too overwhelmed by all the beautiful choices!) I would highly recommend this shop if you're looking to get away from the tourist traps filled with pushy sellers and no way of telling if the items are genuine, local and handmade.
