Marmara Imports began with our love of artisan textiles and was founded by Carol & Susan on a trip to Turkey in 2011. 

They were charmed by the people, customs and culture—and especially taken by the textiles. Meeting the weavers and using their products inspired them to bring them home. I fell in love with these products when I met Carol and Susan at their warehouse sale and knew I wanted to carry on their legacy when they announced they were ready to retire. 

Our mission at Marmara Imports is to offer exceptional, eco-friendly, fair-trade textiles to the U.S. market and beyond. We support global artisans in their endeavor to sustain not only themselves and their families but also the ancient ways of weaving.

Thanks for stopping by!

Please take two minutes to meet our Turkish business partner, Figen Subasi, by viewing the video.  Here Figen shares her dream, and now ours, of opening a school to teach the younger generation the art of hand looming textiles.
