Vintage Turkish Rugs, Kilims, & Decor
Wild Shaman is the culmination of years of passionate work in design and the arts.
The shop is owned and operated by married couple Emre and Yesim Taskin, multi-talented entrepreneurs hailing from beautiful Istanbul, Turkey. Their business is steeped in appreciation for the history and cultural contributions made by their home country.
Walking into Wild Shaman is an experience like no other. Besides being greeted by an explosion of decadent color, customers can also expect a shopping trip which includes lessons in history, textile creation, and cultural relevance. Wild Shaman has quickly become a household name within Portland’s vibrant interior design community. Their handmade rugs and Anatolian goods are a novel and much welcomed addition to the often eclectic aesthetic for which this city is known.
Wild Shaman began as a shop devoted to selling high-quality vintage Turkish rugs, kilims, and decor from the home country of its owners, but the future of the business will be even brighter! The shop is situated within the rapidly expanding arts and design hub that is Central Southeast Portland.
Emre and Yesim’s plan for 2018 and beyond includes a focus on building community ties and providing a space for local creatives to flourish. The Wild Shaman Art Gallery recently celebrated its Grand Opening. And an abundance of workshops and other community focused activities are on the horizon. Come visit, explore, and discover the world of Wild Shaman.
