SMALL | MINORITY | ETHICAL | WOMAN-OWNED

Dr. Bashi™ is a unique brand of sustainably-made and gender/race conscious educational materials, with a focus on Persian (Farsi, Dari, Tajik) and Arabic.

Dr. Bashi™ has become recognized as the first makers of children's educational Persian alphabet wood blocks, made ethically in the United States--and in 2014 we launched a comprehensive educational Arabic alphabet wood blocks for children, made with the same love and care as our Persian. We are in the process of offering our premium educational wood blocks in many other languages, including Urdu and Kurdish soon.

Built on a foundation of love for progressive education, sustainable living, creative and visual arts, we thrive on our commitment to making learning a fun, beautiful and enduring experience. We love toys, fashion and our environment. We live through our mind and craft, make our children proud and offer heirlooms to our community.

The core principle and objective of Dr. Bashi™ is to help endear children to their mother-tongue, to promote and spread the benefits of multilingualism, and the joy of learning and culture through sustainable, original and artistically exciting products.

Every aspect of our designs are carried out with the unparalleled mastery of Kourosh Beigpour over Perso-Arabic typography and design, the utmost care for the environment, love for children, years of Golbarg Bashi's scholarship and reflections in children’s media, women's studies, Persian and Arabic language and pedagogy, and personal insight as a Mom in the trenches.

Since August 2014, Dr. Bashi™ has been offering free Persian Bilingual Storytime every week for children & their families in New York's iconic independent bookstore "Book Culture on Broadway." In November 2014, Dr. Bashi™ launched the "Distinguished Persian Guest Storytellers' Series," inviting prominent Persian-speakers to read their favorite children's stories (in Persian) during Saturday storytime.
