Carpet weaving is a tradition in Turkey. We know that carpets are produced in Sivas since 13th. century. As far as i see, this tradition is not very much alive today. Still, you can buy new and old carpets from Sivas.

2 shops at the entrance of Izzettin Keykavus Hospital (Darussifa) sells carpets. You can find Iran carpets as well as Anatolian carpets.

The sellers never get tired of showing different carpets that you might like and they prefer talking about the carpets and bargaining while dirinking a cup of tea or coffee at a coffehouse on the courtyard of the historical hospital...

What to buy: Carpets, Kilims
