Turkish Tulip works to promote and introduce traditional Turkish arts and crafts to all cultures while makes it possible for artisans to earn a fair wage.
Sinan Atilla is the main artist who makes the meerschaum products we showcase. He started to learn his craft from his master when he was 13. Now as a master himself, he taught two others the art of meerschaum carving.
In Turkey, artists primarily sell their products at the mercy of middle men who pay them whatever they feel like. Turkish Tulip allows Sinan and artists like him to work without a middle person. The artists set their prices and Turkish Tulip purchases the products from them directly at their price. What makes our products unique is that they represent hard work of many carvers and painters. They are all handmade and no two items are the same.
