Kusadasi Carpet Weaving Excursion Reviews
Not happy with this, we really wanted to buy a rug but found the prices were aimed at Americans and therefore a ripoff.
Interesting but at about £3K a carpet not for most.
Educational and great people.
we found the timing a bit long, because then we did not have enough time to shop and bargain in the Bazaar. Everything was expensive.
I enjoyed learning about silk weaving and carpet weaving. I am in sales but I still thought the owner was too pushy with the carpets. They are beautiful but I would have like more time at the ruins.
very interesting actually - they obviously have tourists all the time but I did learn abit too. No wonder these carpets are so expensive as they are very labour intensive .. and we had a nice snack of fruit and pasties with apple cider. Needless to say they were wanting to sell sell sell - so if you arent in the market - they go to the next person.
This was something very new to me and I found it fascinating. The owner of the business was great allowing my wife to try tying the knots and when the weaver had done a few more rows it was obvious which knots my wife had done. It is a lot more difficult then it looks. We were shown many examples of the carpets which were lovely but we were no in the market to but any. The owner was not pushy trying to make a sale and even gave us a coffee before we left.
