You might be able to find real antiques ones...or you can eaisly find a good quality hand made one.....But you should bargain hardly!!! :)

Unique Suggestions: When they say 1000 say 500 after them....then you can find a mid point to get a good deal.

Fun Alternatives: It's always better to buy that sort of stuff in Anaotolia.... Kayseri, Isparta etc...these are the main lands for carpet production.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
