What We’re About
Market Sultan, originally “Sultan Spice”, was founded in 2014.
As a former chef, Mousa knew the importance of using authentic top quality spices, the most important, and hard to obtain in New Zealand, being Saffron.
After a few years of selling several different spices and foodstuffs, Mousa consolidated the business, settling on Saffron as the only foodstuff on his shelf, and branched out into other homeware from the Middle East.
A visit to a friend’s factory started the journey into mats. The mats are a jacquard weave, with a rubberised non-slip backing. A very modern process is used to reproduce traditional Persian patterns, in a hard wearing, easy wash floor mat.
Market Sultan have brought in a limited number of cuddly blankets. They are very popular in the Middle East, where in places, it definitely gets cold!
We are making trips back to the Middle East every few years, so each time he intends to add to the variety of goods available. He is looking forward to adding beautiful things to the Homewares department.
