Turkey

Emerald green landscapes, sapphire blue waters and Cappadocian caves that remind me of upside-down ice cream cones… These are among my lasting impressions of Turkey, a land that is part European, part Middle Eastern, part Asian, and one-hundred percent hospitable and inviting. I have made many friends in Turkey, including Seydi, one of my most-trusted vendors. Generous and wise people like Seydi have taught me that a Turkish carpet – or any artifact – is much more than simply woven wool, hammered metal or hand-thrown pottery. It is something that comes bundled with the memories and traditions of many generations and when we bring them into our lives, we become a part of that history.

Salt Bags

Salt bags were used in Turkey and throughout Central Asia by shepherds to haul chunks of rock salt which would be fed to their sheep to help them drink and retain more water. Salt bags needed to be tightly woven and sturdy with a narrow neck to keep salt in and water out, thus their unique shape and appearance. Now, these woolen bags can make a statement displayed as a wall hanging, framed, or used to decorate a special table. View details...

Sofras / Rugs
