Tell us a little bit about your work…


Our company brings a tasteful touch to your homes and businesses with its carefully selected, exceptional and elegant home and fine dining decoration products. 


Hittite London, our brand in UK, was born in 2021, introducing our top of the quality handcrafted products with UK customers. Through our exclusive partnerships, and our 45 years’ experience of handcrafted production in Istanbul – Turkey, we aim to meet bespoke requirements of not only our retail customers, but also hospitality businesses. 


Based in North London, providing high-quality products across all customers in UK. 

How did it all start?


Hittite London is our dream coming true. With our extensive experience and partnerships with producers across Turkey, we decided to introduce our top of the range products with UK consumers.  


The objective of our company is to provide exclusive and unique handcrafted products which are not commonly found on the high street.

What inspires you?


Our dream is to be the elegant touch with exclusive and authentic products decorating everyday experiences.

What is your best-selling product?  


Our tabletop fine dining decoration products and unique lantern candles are our top sellers. 

What are you looking forward to the most about exhibiting at the Christmas Fair?


We are very excited to participate in Country Living Fairs. This will be our fist experience with these initiatives. We have high expectations of further growth opportunities and brand awareness through such engagements. 

Your three top tips for crafters and makers…


Sustainability, quality and operational discipline are the top three factors which have been key to our success. Hence, when we are picking our faux leather products being handcrafted in Turkey, we pick highest standards of production methods. All our faux leather products are certified as vegan.
