This is product absolutely beautiful! It's soft and light but still warm. It's even better than I was expecting. And can be used as a scarf when baby is done breastfeeding. I love this!

Welcome... To Our Beacon

Days are getting shorter; the sky is already dark.

As you walk down the street, you come across a shop.

You see some of the designs through the window right away. Have you been passing by this store without noticing it this whole time?

Once inside, knit scarves in different colors catch your eye. Or are they crochet scarves? Who even knows the difference, you think sarcastically. Knit or crochet they would look like Christmas on your shoulders spreading the same warm and cozy feeling around your neck.

A little to the back, you notice a flock of birds looking at you. Then you see some elephants, a few horses and even some zebras. You can almost hear the sounds of the jungle in this part of the store.

Mesmerized, you move on to the next counter. Here you find some silky looking pashmina scarves. There is something about pashminas that feels different from the other scarves. Is it that they are not seasonal like the wool blanket scarves or the light sarongs and beach cover ups?

As you start to map out the holiday season and even the upcoming year in your head; tartan blanket scarves for the in-laws, knit scarves for the Christmas spirit, infinity pashminas as nursing scarves for the baby shower next month or even some pashmina shawls with tassels for your sister’s wedding in next July. Is that a diaper bag next to the cashier?

Suddenly you realize, how long has it been? How long have you been browsing? Why did no one come to greet you? You look around and nobody is around. Only three coats in different sizes that are hanging on the coat stand by the door. The nerves on these people to leave the store unattended, not even a welcome for your visitors?

This is exactly what happens in online shops. So, let us welcome you to our little creative outlet here on Etsy.

We are an accountant, an architect and an engineer. Sounds like the beginning of a bad mortgage joke, right?
Let us explain…

I am Seda. I am an architect.
She stumbled upon Etsy in 2012. She then went on to rallying everyone around her willing to pursue their passion in a project that had no limits, but what its contributors had to offer. This, once finished, later would be called S&A Scarves.

I am Azime. I am a retired accountant and also Seda’s mother.
Azime used to help out in boutique shops and textile workshops at the weekends. While doing so, she has made a lot of longtime friends since. Some of which help her out on S&A Scarves on overwhelming holiday seasons with knitting and sewing.

I am Efe. I am an engineer and also Seda’s husband.
Seda and Efe have been together for ten years and married for one. He is a power electronics engineer. He soaks up every ink that Milan Kundera has to offer. This is probably one of the main reasons that made him aware of his passion for writing.

We all have our passions. They may be different. This shop may mean something different to each one of us, to anyone who contributes to it. For the women who help us during very busy holiday seasons. Maybe this shop provides them the comfort they need to fuel their passions they pursue elsewhere.

In any case, one thing is for sure. We did not create this shop to follow the same singular passion. This shop is a beacon for everyone around us that has the same itch we do. For those who believe that we have it in ourselves to be more than just our daily jobs. That our lives are not dependent only on our career choices we have made in the past. They are not either this or that, but a road with more than a few lanes and definitely with more side and U-turns we can imagine.

Maybe a product that is mass-produced by big companies for cheaper prices would make a more convenient purchase for you. But you are here reading this. Out of billions of product pages on the internet, you are on this page and at this stage of this long read. Then just maybe you too, like us, are after something special. We would like you to know that it is people like you that this beacon of ours is able to shed light to its surroundings.

With love,
S&A Scarves

Frequently asked questions

Why the name Sascarves? Is it a type of scarf I didn’t know about?

Don’t worry your scarf knowledge is as impeccable as ever. “SA” is not a type of scarf. It is our initials; I (Seda) and my mother (Azime) followed by our favorite accessory of all, scarves. They also gave us the idea to start our little creative Etsy outlet.

How can I buy your items? Why no PayPal?

Ordering is easy. Click “Add to cart” button on the right, then “Proceed to checkout” button to finalize your order. Consequently, you’ll receive an e-mail from Shopier which is integrated into Etsy with Etsy API for payments. You can use “Pay Now” button there to complete your transaction via debit or credit card.

We used PayPal for over 4 years, but as of 6th of June, 2016 PayPal has encountered licensing issues and their services are unavailable here in Turkey until they sort those issues out. Till then, if you’d like to join almost 2000 of our clients, we are using Shopier as our secure payment method. It is a reliable service hosted by Amazon Web Services; whole transaction is signed and encrypted, your card data is not stored.

How do your promotions work? Can I choose the free item?

We currently have two promotions available.

One is; when you buy 3 of our items (does not matter which kind), you get 1 more for free and the other is; when you buy 5 of our items (does not matter which kind), you get 2 more for free. Shipping costs of the free item(s) is also free!

The free item(s) is chosen by us, but we do try to give you options to choose from (i.e. color or finish) when we can.

I want a cover up/nursing scarf, why are there so few in your shop?

Almost all of our scarves can be used as cover up/nursing/sarong scarves. We don’t use these names and images for all of them to avoid cluttering, but if you are wondering whether one of them is suitable to be a cover up/nursing/sarong scarf or not, it most likely is. Contact us by clicking on the “Ask a question” button on the right side or send us a message on Etsy. We’d love to hear your questions and even customize the items to your needs.

Your items are lovely, but can I request a change in their size/color/finish?

Of course, you can. While we do try to keep our items as versatile as possible, we also know that there is always more room for customization. So, we’d love to know your ideas and we will do our best to meet your needs to give you the best experience possible. Contact us by clicking on the “Ask a question” button on the right side or send us a message on Etsy.

I need my order gift-wrapped, can you do it?

We gift-wrap all of our items by default. We can also attach a gift note within as well, if you’d like. Just let us know what you’d like the gift card’s content to be and we’ll make it happen.

Wholesale! Do you offer it? What are the prices for it?

Yes, we do offer wholesale!

We provide discounts for wholesale and to give you the best prices available. For that, we are providing it according to how many pieces the order is going to be in total and how soon it is required to be finished.
