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!
