Our story begins nearly twenty years ago when we crossed paths in Amman, Jordan. We discovered a mutual admiration for the rich cultures of the Middle East and the beautiful arts and crafts of the region. We began collecting textiles with hopes of one day opening a store of our own. Our first pieces include hand-loomed carpets from the talented Bani Hamida tribe of Jordan, an industry revitalized by the efforts of Queen Noor. We also collected rare, hand-embroidered Palestinian dresses and shawls. After relocating to the United States, we spent nearly five years collecting products and developing our business. In 2003 we opened our doors at Indigo Traders.
Today our family business is dedicated to celebrating the flavor of other cultures. For years we have traveled throughout Turkey and the Middle East in search of family-run textile makers and craftsmen who value tradition and insist on quality. We have discovered artisan families
still producing traditional objects as they were generations before. We are pleased to offer these products online and in our Portland boutique.
