AEGEAN LOOM WAS CREATED OUT OF THE LOVE OF GOOD QUALITY. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE, BUT IT DOES HAVE TO BE MADE BEAUTIFULLY.
I’ve always been inspired by such crafters that can turn the ordinary into something exquisite. I have been travelling to Turkey and beyond for the past 25 years and I have always marvelled in all sorts of homewares, soft furnishings and design but learning about the weavers’ plight, this is where I felt I could play a part in ensuring the life of this dying craft.
The first touch of these organic cotton, hand-loomed Turkish towels was like an epiphany for me, I knew these were better. There is no mass-scale production at Aegean Loom, just beautifully handmade pieces. It brings me joy to promote old world craftsmanship to bring you new world luxury.
Not only do I completely adore the sheer beauty of fine Turkish craftsmanship, but also I’ve always loved the hospitality and warmth that these people exude. In every visit to Turkey, I have seen so much love and happiness surrounding me, whether it was a simple heart-warming greeting or an unexpected offering, Turkey definitely occupies a huge part of my heart.
This is the beauty of Turkey. The food is scrumptious, the craftsmanship is like no other and the people are so hospitable.
I will forever remember how amazing the people of Turkey make me feel and will always be grateful.
