Deb Atiyeh started Deb Atiyeh & Associates in 1990. While traveling in Asia, Deb developed a love for colorful textiles, art, scarves, and ethnic jewelry. After working as a Registered Nurse for 10 years, she decided it was time for a more creative, artistic world. She started a job managing and buying for an Asian Art Gallery in Portland, Oregon which evolved after 2 years into starting her own business representing the products she loved.
The business grew steadily and evolved into a wonderful collection of lines with loyal and lasting customers. Deb’s relationships with her lines and customers matter and have lasted over the years. For this, Deb is extremely grateful!
Cally McVay worked at Pendleton Woolen Mills for 6 years, progressing from sales to management in the retail and fabric division.

Cally manages the office and helps with marketing, shows, and customer relations. Her creativity with technology and marketing is an asset to the company.
