About Us

Welcome to Biev!

Hi everyone, first of all, thank you so much for visiting Biev. 😄

My name is Arda; I’m a 27-year-old entrepreneur. I attended Babson College in Wellesley, MA from 2013 until 2017 and got an entrepreneurship degree.

Even before attending Babson, my dream was to be a business owner; I’ve had several online ventures in the past and I finally decided that e-commerce is what I like to do.

I came back to Turkey in 2018 and got myself a job as an e-commerce manager for a local Turkish retail brand that specialized in high-end dinnerware sets and other dowry-related products.

In August 2020, I was FaceTiming with my close friend from Los Angeles and we talked about handmade rugs. That night I decided I wanted to sell vintage rugs. I spoke to a few people around me and quickly teamed up with a local vintage rug company and started selling their rugs (consignment). I had already owned Biev.com (domain) before, so I set up a website and created an Etsy store.

I then decided to take some risks; quickly found local rug dealers and started building my own inventory. I sold my first rug to an amazing customer in Toronto, Canada on 4th of November 2020. As of today (4th of November 2022), I've sold over 900 rugs and shipped vintage rugs to almost all 50 American states.

Today, my goal is to help you find your dream vintage rug. As of August 2022, I stopped buying rugs smaller than 7x10; my biggest focus is on oversized rugs right now so if that's something you're looking for; stay tuned 😁

Thanks again for visiting my Instagram page, it really means a lot to me.

Whether it's a general question about rugs, or a business development tip; please don't hesitate to contact me anytime, I'll be more than happy to chat.

All the best,
