AFEZ OF THE HEART was established in 2001, by Jerry and Katrina after they travelled extensively through Turkey, Morocco and Jordan. They created a beautiful souk in the heart of Bunbury to share the diversity and rich culture of the places they had explored.
The shop was then bought in 2017 by us, Emma and Brett. We've also travelled extensively through Europe, Turkey, the US and after living in London returned home to Bunbury to start a family.The love of travel has never left us and with our children we have also explored Australia, Vietnam and Bali.
We now continue Jerry and Katrina's tradition of travelling to India, Turkey and Morocco to hand pick and source our unique furniture, textiles, rugs, lanterns, lights, ceramics, tiles and jewellery.
Often described as an 'Aladdin's Cave', AFEZ OF THE HEART specialises in unique handmade pieces such as stained glass lanterns; hand painted ceramics and tiles in the Ottoman tradition; hand block printed tablecloths and textiles; beautifully carved wooden panels and furniture; ceramic hand painted drawer and door knobs; leather and fabric ottomans, cushions and quilts; intricately engraved brass and silverware; hand woven jute and wool kilims.
We have a large range of Ayala Bar jewellery. This stunning jewellery is handcrafted in Israel by renowned international designer Ayala Bar, who produces two collections a year.
We are excited to now also stock a selection of Japanese ceramics and beautiful clothing made in India.
We invite you to experience the unique..... vibrant colours, textures and smells at AFEZ OF THE HEART
