YurtStore is the inspiration store for contemporary design of young designers from the Silk Road and designers inspired by the Silk Road. Craftsmanship, natural materials and re-use of materials make these designs unique. Some designers express their story by using traditional crafts. Some designers find inspiration in re-use of materials. And others find passion in colour and traditional fabrics to make your place a home. Actually, our name is inspired by the Turkish word 'Yurt', which means 'home' in Turkish and is the home of nomads. For centuries the Silk Road created an exchange of valuable goods, views and culture between the east and the west. Now, YurtCollection is striving to create a new exchange of valuable goods, craftmanshift and culture through inspiring and contemporary designs of young designers from the Silk Road.
