Hand Made Gifts from Turkey and Central Asia
Our Nativity Sets are hand painted in Kutahya, Turkey, and have centuries old Ottoman designs. Tulips originated in Turkey, and were imported by the Dutch in the 17th century. Kutahya, located in Western Turkey, has a rich history, having been occupied by Phrygians, Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines. When the Seljuk Turks captured it in the 12th century, they were pushed out by Crusaders, only to have it retaken and turned into an Ottoman capital. For centuries this town has been producing beautiful hand painted china.
