SMALL STEPS FORWARD
How will we develop Pazaar
Our plan is to develop Pazaar in small steps, gradually introducing new products and information as we develop and grow our network of Pazaar makers in Turkey. To start with we had a focus on traditional Turkish hand-woven textiles; peştemal and hammam towels, sofa throws and blankets or pike (pee-kay) as they are called in Turkey. Last year we began to introduce our favourite home products; the biscuit moulds, spice grinders and közmatik...our amazing aubergine roasting tray!! This year we have been focusing on some beautiful new terracotta ceramics, which we hope will be in the Pazaar shop soon.
What about next year?
Who knows what next year will bring? In Fethiye, the town near where we lived in Turkey, there is the most amazing tahini maker! It is, in all honesty, the best tahini ever...so when we have navigated the complex world of importing food products from Turkey to UK, maybe we will have Pazaar tahini, fingers crossed!
