Tekke Arts is an online retail/wholesale business established in year 2003 and is located in Ontario, Canada. The majority of our products are from the nomadic Kuchi and Bedouin tribes of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen,
Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. We also carry jewelry and beads from Tibet
and Nepal and carved furniture from Swat.
Our suppliers ship most of our goods to us but the unique and one-of-a-kind pieces are hand selected when we go on buying trips to Asia. The artists, co-operatives, and traders who supply us with these unique works of art are an essential part of our business. We put great effort into positively representing the beautiful cultures and arts of the countries and tribes that we buy from. Most of our suppliers are small family businesses and craftsmen. There is no child labor involved in the making of the products and the prices paid for the goods helps provide a comfortable livelihood for these families.
Our collection includes ethnic jewelry with semi-precious stones including Lapis Lazuli, Jade, Jasper, Onyx, Carnelian, Amber, Corals and Turquoise to name a few. We also carry old Bedouin jewelry from Yemen and Kuchi jewelry from the nomadic tribes of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Our online collection also includes rare tribal ornaments, textiles, rugs, weavings, dresses, costumes, ethnic beads and components for jewelry designers, ethnic musical instruments, oriental antiques and collectible items. In the past we have also had the opportunity to supply set decorations to feature films and TV series that incorporated ethnic and medieval settings on their sets. With our long time experience in trading Central Asian arts and antiques you can be confident that you are purchasing quality merchandise from a direct source.
