Hereke carpets became an eminent part of European culture having been placed in almost all architectural residential masterpieces that were built in the 19th century such as Versailles and Lahey Peace Palace, and have successfully extended their presence all the way to the White House. The HAN CARPET family made cherished contribution to Turkish art and continued the Hereke tradition by bringing it to its pinnacle spanning four generations beginning with our great grandfather Veyis Ağa.  We are proud to celebrate Hereke as the only Turkish carpet trademark with its unique hand-made masterpieces for royal palaces such as Buckingham Palace. Today you can be sure to see a king or a president who visit Turkey holding one of the HAN CARPET products.
