Catherine and Abit Bayar's Profile
I am an American woman who has been traveling to Turkey since the late '80's; I have lived here since 1999. In the years since we started Bazaar Bayar, my husband Abit and I have collected jewelry, vintage carpets, kilims and other treasures that speak to us from Anatolia to Central Asia.
With my background in textile, clothing and interior design, and Abit's knowledge of Turkish traditions, we've based our business on a passion for all things handcrafted, and work with local artisans to make the items we don't personally make ourselves.
