Gallery Ararat was established more than 40 years ago by Burhan Kartal who is a well-known and highly respected persona in antique rug business and in Kurdish society due to his sociological work and his published books.
The idea of collecting and preserving antique rugs has been the core of forming Gallery Ararat. Under the leadership and guidance of Burhan Kartal, unique rugs and special antique pieces have been delivered to many people, organizations and museums over the past decades.
As Gallery Ararat, we have been trying to contribute to the heritage of orient cultures, history and art by collecting pieces that should preserved with utmost care. Likewise, we trust the new owners of such pieces to have the same mentality and always regard the value and importance of these special pieces.
