While looking for beads (for jewelry-making) in Istanbul, I was totally sidetracked by the stunning textiles done by nomadic and village women- infinite patterns and use of color. I wanted to see more and learn more.
I was showing my jewelry at Arabian and Egyptian horse shows, so I started bringing a few textiles back and incorporating them in my displays. My customers were delighted and wanted me to bring more.That’s how it started twenty years ago. Today Canoe has grown into a resource for unique and beautiful rugs, textiles and artifacts from the markets in Istanbul and country areas of Turkey.
