Our Story


A new brand of rugs, with innovative design and production techniques, was born with the knowledge, cultural richness and experience transferred from father to daughter in the Aegean, where the heart of textile beats; in an atelier that has been producing rugs for 60 years, located in Uşak, Turkey, one of the important centre of the rug and carpet culture.

TheKeep is a product of the dreams of two architects who design spaces, putting their heads together and adding new stories to the stories hidden inside these spaces.


Bilge Kalfa: Architect. She creates spaces on the Istanbul-Berlin line, transforms spaces, draws, sketches, designs and teaches. She likes to look at trees.

Senem Akçay: Architect. She designs, traces the vanished places, preserves the existing ones, writes books and teaches.
