In 1989, Ridvan and Siw Tatargil, a husband and wife team with a sense of adventure and an unflappable entrepreneurial spirit, started manufacturing “kilim” pillows in a 3,000-square foot loft in downtown Chicago. With only one designer and two sewers, the challenges were many. However, the vision that continues to drive Eastern Accents became clear: to use gorgeous textiles in creating home accessories of superior craftsmanship and exceptional quality.
We expanded our product line in 1994 with the introduction of three bedding collections, and business has flourished ever since. Today, we operate out of a 230,000-square foot facility located in the heart of Chicago with over 300 employees – including an experienced sewing staff, artisans, and highly skilled craftsmen. In-house departments such as product design, graphics, the custom workroom, and our photo studio give us complete control of the creative process for all our products. Though we have grown, Eastern Accents still proudly maintains the close-knit feel of a family business.
Today, we are a unique wholesale bedding and accessory company offering products that reflect the style and diversity of the home decor industry. We’re also proud to feature private label projects such as Barclay Butera Lifestlyes Bedding, Thomasville Top of Bed, and an assortment of luxury soft home furnishings for Room and Board. Our clientele includes premium home furnishing retailers, interior designers, and luxury hotels.
