My name is Sev. I'm born in Turkey and raised in the Netherlands. In Turkey our house was filled with beautiful old rugs. Some of them we took with us when we moved to the Netherlands. I think my love for this kind of rugs started in my younger age. And when i decided to start my own company, the choice for vintage rugs was easy to make.
The respect and appreciation for the creators who have woven a rug decades ago, the story that a handcrafted rug tells and the beauty of these rugs attracted me to this industry.
With Dostcha Living my dream of becoming an entrepreneur, travelling and giving something back to society has come true. Giving back is done by supporting foundations that make education accessible to children. From each sold rug we make a payment to these foundations to increase the chances of children.
Dostcha Living is a family business. I’m the owner, called "The Auntie", and my nieces and nephews help me.
Rob, a dear friend of mine for many years, is the e-commerce consultant and a part of the company.
Our company is called Dostcha Living. That's no coincidence. The Turkish word "dostca" (pronounced as dostcha) means "friendly, amicable." And that's exactly how we treat our customers and partners.
We wish you a pleasant journey on our site and we hope you will enjoy the beautiful stories as well as our beautiful rugs.
