We will explore treasures and riches of your wildest dreams but take back with us the most prized possession of all; ancient wisdom.
It is said that the Ottoman empire was ruled from within the Imperial harem. Housing all the women of royalty, this secret abode was forbidden to men. The Damask String Tie Bottom flaunts this majestic lifestyle and the political prowess of its women.
Once upon a time, Istanbul was Constantinople; 'the city of the world's desire.' One of the largest and most affluent cities, she commanded the trade routes between the Aegean and the Black Sea. Our Kirmizi Red String Tie Bottom boldly captures the vivacity of this Byzantine capital.
Before tulips reached Europe, they were brought through the trade route via Turkey. Not only were they cultivated in royal gardens, but also became a motif of imperialism, immortalized by Iznik ceramics. These tiles can be seen all over Turkey; from palaces, to mosques, to hamams, and now our Iznik String Tie Bottom!
Purely decorative or used for prayer, Anatolian kilims are exquisite works of art. Every weaved pattern tells a story backed by thousands of years of antiquity. The Kilim String Tie Bottom displays symbols such as kocbuynuzu (ram's horn) to bring you fertility, heroism and strength, and pitrak (burdock plant) to ward off the evil eye.
