We have just arrived back from our exciting Persian and Turkish buying and we wanted to share some of our experiences with you - yes the weather was extremely hot it being August, but it was certainly worth it - we sourced some fabulous items including our popular Kilim stools as well as lots of stunning rugs, kilims & textiles - here are some images of from our travels
You always start with tea - Persian Style!
We hunt high and low for gorgeous rugs - it takes us to some off the beaten track places in Persia
Our popular Persian Stools will be in the autumn shipment
