R. PoplackR. PoplackSuper fast mailing

The bag just arrived. It's a nice little bag and I've positioned it under another Turkmen spindle bag. Super fast mailing. I can't get UPS or FEDEX in the states to deliver my packages this quickly. How do you do it? I will deal with you again. Many Thanks.

Dear Turkish Folk Art,
I was able to pick up the mafrash at the UPS depot today. It's even more beautiful in person than in the pictures. As you know, that isn't always true. Thank you very much, I think our paths will cross again.

C. R. PrattC. R. PrattAll was taken care in a professional way

The latest treasure box arrived in good order. The two necklaces are nicer in person than they appeared online. The other two small textiles are both wonderful — impressive both in size as well as design and execution. Fast shipping. All was taken care in a professional way. Thanks to Turkish Folk Art team.

Butch Carber and Nancy LongButch Carber and Nancy LongIt is really fun to make business with YOU and Murathan

Thank you so much for all the work to get the famous tribal carpet here so fast. It is gorgeous. We were so excited to open it up, and it looks gorgeous here in our room!! It is really fun to make business with YOU and Murathan. You have some crazy beautiful objects of art and textiles on your web-Site. Amazing that you have collected many of them in the past 25 years. We put the word "Turkish Folk Art" around.

Wishing you all the best from ALASKA

G.E. T.  BurlingtonG.E. T. people have proved to be thoroughly helpful and honest

I am very pleased with the rug, ( a Bakhtiary ). It is far better than I imagined, in pristine condition, wonderful natural dyes, and great glossy wool! I enjoy it on the floor of my library. Every time I deal with new folks in the Rug Business, I am a bit apprehensive. How good are the colors and wool quality going to be etc. I must say, people have proved to be thoroughly helpful and honest, a real pleasure to deal with. I am very happy and Thank you a lot for your pre-shipping necessary services.

With my most cordial regards,

G.E. T. Burlington, Ont. CANADA

Brian ChattertonBrian ChattertonBeautiful items very rapidly

"Turkish Folk Art" was friendly and very quick to respond to all questions, and sent me the beautiful items (priced reasonably) very rapidly (within a couple of days) by courier from Turkey, at no extra cost. I can recommend "turkishfolkart" without reservations as being knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.

Today I've received the carpet. I love it. It is Ok even if I had to pay Euro 46,00 for import taxation.
Please let me know in case you have some other similar rugs especially with the same colors.
Best regards.

The spindles arrived. I love them. They spin well. The red one is a bit more difficult to use but not impossible. Thank you.

Terry DalleTerry DalleIt is the perfect one for me

Hi, Vedat and Murathan

I received the spindle and whorl and it is how I remembered/imagined it to be. It is the perfect one for me. I am very pleased. Your cooperation was outstanding in getting the spindle back to me all the way from England. Thank you for your care and understanding.

Hilary MoonYour service is exceptional

I have received the pillow covers - THRILLED! They are beautiful, your service is exceptional. And you can any time give potential customers my e-mail address (or phone number) so that we can give a recommendation personally. Sometimes, people think that reviews are made up by the service provider themselves.

Best Wishes

David E.David E.The fact that you shipped it so quickly was quite a surprise

Dear Turkish Folk Art,

The bag face arrived this morning. It is very nice, and I'm very pleased with it, so I thank you!
I also wanted to thank you for all the cleaning that you did. I appreciate that very much. And the fact that you shipped it so quickly. That was quite a surprise. I thought it would be traveling for at least week or more, rather than two days!

I will continue to check regularly your Rug Rabbit and Turkish Folk Art listings for things of interest to me. Thanks again.

My best, David E., North Carolina

Richard LeeRichard LeeMy Last Purchase was a Kirgiz camel trapping

My purchases from Turkish Folk Art not only please and delight me, but my visitors and friends have the lovely idea that I must be some kind of expert collector. I am far from that, but I do enjoy basking in Vedat's reflected expertise and insights. My last purchase was a Kirghiz camel trapping, for a very fair price. It is outstanding! I am lucky to have it. It is a great fun to live with tribal textiles.

Marilyn DennyMarilyn DennyTheir prices are very good and they are extremely reliable

I have purchased several things from Turkish Folk Art. I know the owners of this online store over 10-12 years. Both men are very knowledgeable about what they sell and have, over time, collected a wide and interesting variety of folk/cultural art objects - made of textile, wood, beads and metal, among other things. In addition, their prices are very good and they are extremely reliable. I love checking their web-site couple times a week.
I have also travelled with Vedat over the past 10 years, with small groups going to Iran recently, Central Asia – Uzbekistan - Tajikistan, Syria (before turned into a disaster) and western Turkey. The trips are well planned, historical and cultural based on material culture of the places we have traveled. I dearly recommend joining Vedat for travel if you can get in one of his cultural adventures.

Jean ClaytonJean ClaytonThank you for being an honest online proprietor

Hi Turkish Folk Art,

I searched on Internet for the perfect pillow, but only found your pillow after Googling for several days when I ran across your website. I received my pillow cover very quickly. I was pleasantly surprised at that. It is beautiful and extremely well-constructed. Thank you for being an honest online proprietor, as sometimes when one is buying from another country, we get scammed or ripped-off. So kudos to you.

Thanks again and I hope you have continued success.
