When I was in the 6th grade a teacher told us about how she and her sister would sit on their grandmothers rugs and just look at the patterns, looking for small irregularities. They would spend hours at a time looking and looking.

I thought they sounded crazy at the time. Then, a few months later, during summer vacation I saw a rug, live, in person and not just a picture or as a prop in a movie. I was mesmerized. I stood there, looking for irregularities.

When I was almost 19 I was in Turkey for the first time, met the love of my life - a Hungarian there to learn more Turkish. We spent 2 weeks together in Turkey and visited many carpet shops. I was mesmerized that she could speak such a beautiful language and knew so much about carpets.

When I was 23, we were living together, she wrote her History of Art thesis on carpets. We had books all over the place, articles, etc etc etc.. Back to Turkey and more shops, then to Diviğri and ulu camı. Wow!

I had an eye, she had a brain. We got to see so many carpets in Van, Kars, Trabzon, Istanbul after Diviğri . Wow! We would walk in, shop keepers started their spiel. Evi chit-chatted with them, I ignored them, found the good stuff, pointed to them, then things would get serious. Evi asked lots of questions, they were so happy that finally somebody knew their way around carpets.

All of these wonderful memories because I learned from a teacher that carpets tell us stories, tell us life, we just have to listen, to open our eyes and more importantly our hearts.
I'm dreaming about the cloths that are on the way. They will hang from the ceiling.
We love ❤️ our friends at Magic Caravan. They have the coolest rugs and gifts/ antique stuff in Austin. Stop by and say hello, you wont regret it Magic Caravan

Our Story

Before landing in Austin and founding Magic Caravan’s North American flagship store, Huseyin Sahin traveled around the world expanding his knowledge and adding to this collection of Turkish rugs and goods. As a seventh-generation rug collector, and having been named in the front room of his grandfather’s rug store, Sahin grew up learning the intricacies of Turkish rugs and the art of collecting. He first set up shop in the early 2000s in Göreme, Turkey and later moved the operation to Istanbul and opened Arsah Carpets in 2004. Over the next decade, Sahin established himself as a one-of-a-kind, colorful fixture in the Turkish rug scene and expanded his shop to include HuseyinIstanbul, a line of towels, robes and hamam products, many of his own design.

During this time, Sahin was traveling back and forth to the United States and touring cross-country with a van full of rugs. He would visit his American clients and host events that came to be known fondly as “Rug Tupperware Parties” in almost all 50 states. After returning to Turkey and following the death of his younger brother in 2012, Sahin traveled the coastlines of Australia before to the States to start another “Rug Tupperware” tour. It was during this trip that he stopped in Austin and ended up staying permanently and establishing Magic Caravan in December 2015. He quickly fell in love with the various local businesses and the energy of Burnet Road and decided to set up shop.

Phoebe Reed, a Brooklyn-born transplant, joined the Magic Caravan team in 2017 after moving to Austin. As a Studio Art major, maker, world traveler (having lived in the Middle East for some time), embroiderer and textile lover, Reed became enthralled by the art of rug collecting and quickly became an asset to Magic Caravan. Her part time role at the shop developed into a deep friendship and investment partnership with Sahin and she became a full time co-owner and operator of Magic Caravan in January 2019.

“The goal was to become a locally known business in town, and in the area - to get to know our neighbors, and to serve our clients who live here, around us, and come back again and again because they love our rugs and the way we love our rugs,” said Sahin. “To have them, in their homes, honors us because they choose a rug with their heart, to live on it and have it in their daily lives.”
