Cinar, which means “maple tree” in Turkish, was founded in 1935, in Kayseri, Turkey, and was first introduced to the United States in 2012, when managing partner Mia Gargiulo showcased the brand’s rugs in private showings in New York and Chicago. Says Mehmet Cinar, a descendant of the original founders who now leads the company’s creative team with his brother Hassan: “We are thrilled to marry our Turkish artistry with the vibrancy of New York City. For each one of us at Cinar, this launch represents a connectivity to craft and to art, and an extension of Turkey here in New York.”
