If you're tired of buying products that other people are exploited to make so you can have a nice, affordable product, then you've come to the right place - because so are we! That's why we source our blankets and scarves directly from our partners in Turkey, whom we know personally. We know where and how our blankets and scarves are made, namely in a small village in western Turkey. In contrast to machine production with fully automatic looms, our blankets, shawls, and towels are mostly made with semi-automatic looms. These have to be operated by people and are slower in production. We have up to 25 women and several families working with us, whose main source of income is weaving blankets and rolling the tassels. This guarantees them regular employment with decent pay, and you an authentic product, which has not been fabricated in a big factory as one of many and without personal reference.
Environmentally friendly & sustainable.
The way of production holds another factor that is essential to us at TAYF: environmental friendliness. Yes, we import the blankets and towels from Turkey, and thus they have to be shipped to Germany. However, we make sure to order in larger quantities so there is less shipping, and we pack each product for you in paper, while we ourselves receive the goods loose in boxes. Most of the cotton comes from Turkey itself, where the production takes place. This is not done industrially, thus saving emissions and energy in the manufacturing process itself as well as for transportation, and supports local weavers.
