Pasha Living was launched in March 2019 by husband and wife team Serra and David who live in Bath, U.K. Pasha Living is predominantly an e-commerce website, but we also hold pop-up shopping events throughout the year.
Serra has lived in the UK her whole life, but is heavily influenced by her Turkish background and there are nods towards her heritage throughout Pasha Living. The name for example is inspired by her 19th Century ancestor Mustafa Reşid Pasha, who was an Ottoman statesman and diplomat, and more recently in the 1880s her great, great grandfather, Kadri Pasha (pictured) who worked as a GP in the Dolmabaçhe Palace. (The Ottoman Emperors moved from Topkapı Palace to Dolmabaçhe Palace during the 1850's.) Our core products also reflect Serra's Turkish roots, such as the travel staple Turkish hammam towels and hand made Bodrum sandals.
Recreating the heady atmosphere of exoticism and comfort found in ancient cultures.
Serra and David are inspired by travel and the warmth and fun that evokes; that is always front of mind when products are sourced and they aim to create a slice of sunshine all year round. We also love to celebrate the heritage of different cultures and many of the products we stock reflect ancient design.
As well as capturing the spirit of warmth and travel we also pride ourselves on working with independent businesses who specialise in blending a mix of traditional production methods and new technology that promote conscious production and slow fashion. We specifically look for brands that use sustainable production methods, recycled materials if possible and create timeless pieces that will last from season to season.
