About us

WELCOME / Hoş Geldin!

My name is Ferzan Jaeger and I'm the founder of Olive & Loom. Raised in Turkey and settled in the US, my passion is exploring new ways to bring these two cultures together. I love to surround myself with simple treasures to remind me of family, history, my favorite foods, or the vibrant Istanbul lifestyle. After having my first child, I have become even more interested in raising him in a multicultural environment and teaching him my family traditions.

 

ABOUT US / OLIVE & LOOM

Olive & Loom's mission is to bring you traditional, old world goods with a fresh, modern aesthetic. We focus on practical items made using artisanal methods and all natural sources.

So, here we are: Olive & Loom. Soul-made, simple, traditional, functional products. We started this journey in 2016 inspired by the wonderful Turkish Baths / Hamam rooted in the rich history of the Ottoman Empire. Our hand-loomed peshtemal towels are made from 100% Turkish cotton, enriched by bright sunny skies and warm Mediterranean breezes. We accompany our towels with rich Olive Oil soap bars: natural, moisturizing & soothing, and infused with wonderful fragrances.

In 2018, we continue to showcase the versatility of our Modern Peshtemal by offering robes plus kitchen, hand and hair towels made from the same wonderful hand-woven material. Our robes look like you just stepped out of the hotel spa and the lightweight, absorbent construction of loomed Turkish cotton makes our hand towels perfect for where life takes you – whether bath, beach, kitchen, gym or travel.

Olive & Loom brings you the textures, colors and scents of Turkey, my first home. I hope that each product brings you as much pleasure as it does me.
