Welcome to carpet repair and restore workshop website! My name is Ahmet Bayrakdar. I have been fixing, restoring, expertizing and taking care of antique, old and usual carpets for all my life. My workshop is in the historic center of Istanbul where professionals from different countries work under my leadership.
Depending on the carpet type, it will be fixed by the expert who specializes in this particular carpet type. Carpet restoration and repair is a real art, it’s a very skilled trade which is passed on from generation to generation. The interest to antique and old carpets is deepening, and most of them need repair of some lost parts. Asian countries show the greatest interest to silk carpets restoration. It’s interesting and important to know that the number of stitches per 1cm2 might reach 800!
