About the Business

YASHAR BISH is an exhilarating experience of the beautiful and the exotic from from Turkey’s Anatolian planes, Central Asia’s colourful lands and the Middle East's migrating tribes. We began trading in the early 1990's, after our serious interest in exploring Turkey and especially the rich Anatolian heritage brought us some spectacular finds...

We have developed a wide trading network which we continually expand and refine to ensure our customers have the best selection of Oriental Merchandise.  We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and will always do our absolute best to help.  We are happy to answer any questions, and can easily be contacted here.  




We personally source beautiful rugs, carpets and kilims and other interesting curiosities. This enables us to identify each piece individually resulting in a shop laden with an outstanding collection of truly gorgeous and good value items.




Our Brighton showroom is a visual delight of oriental wonder with voluptuous piles of beautiful hand-woven oriental carpets, rugs and kilims from Turkey, Afghanistan and Persia, heaps of gorgeous hand-woven floor cushions and magnificent hand embroidered Suzani wall hangings and tribal trappings from Central Asia

Our jewel coloured brass filigree lamps, as well as the hand-painted rich and vivid ceramics, act as the perfect accolade to all this sumptuous splendour. Every item is expertly selected to ensure YASHAR BISH meets the needs of serious collectors and those excited by the exotic alike.
