Who are we?
We are Nikoo and Thomas an Iranian-Dutch couple living in The Hague in a bi-cultural home. Being born and raised in two totally different worlds, we are proud of our both backgrounds and creating a bridge to bring these two worlds closer has been our common dream for a longer time. Roya Store (Roya means dream in Persian) is born out of this common dream. We want to set steps in connecting our worlds together and bring some Persian color and soul to our Dutch life.
Why Roya Store?
Did you know that there are many talented Iranian artisans and designers creating wonderful handmade products in Iran? They love art and beauty and they want to share this love with a broader audience beyond the borders of their own country. They share the same passions and interests as many of us: they care about quality, uniqueness, sustainability and they want to make this world a more colorful place to live in! Through Roya Store we want to support these artisans by providing them the chance to introduce their colorful work and joyful souls outside of Iran and get connected internationally with a larger public. At the same time we love to show you a more colorful image of the country and its rich culture.
The current version of Roya Store is the first step in realizing our dream. We are still dreaming of bigger impacts with empowering more artists in Iran. We care about giving back to support more artisans to grow their own business. Do you want to support us?
