Gale's notes on sizing: “I am a true 9.5. but my feet are skinny. When I wear the 40 its slips off my feet. When I wear the 39 its fits really snug, its not uncomfortable but it is definitely snug in the toes. So depending on how comfortable you feel you would like it to fit, take my fit for what its worth."
Tara Strategier's passion was kindled during her first visit to Turkey in 1986 when she was 14 years old. In the following years, her passion for design, Ottoman architecture and lifestyle, kept growing. Fortunately, her parents shared her fascination so that a trip to Turkey became an annual family event. Although tourism was still rather new to Turkey at that time, Tara and her parents sought relatively unknown regions untouched by tourism.
After many years, Tara did a course in Turkish in Istanbul, and during her studies of museology, she participated in as many projects related to her passion for Turkey and the Near East as possible. Taking beautiful things home from Turkey was something that Tara had already started doing as a child: wrapping paper, mouth-blown teacups, fabrics, etc.
Together with her first partner, and now husband, Maarten ten Böhmer, a true entrepreneur, the first trip to Turkey was rather exciting: would he be able to understand this passion? Happily, he too was fascinated, and many travels to Turkey and neighboring countries like Syria and Lebanon were to follow.
