From Bethesda Patch
Olive & Loom, a Mediterranean-inspired lifestyle and apothecary boutique, has opened its second Maryland location in North Bethesda. Located at 11815 Grand Park Ave., the 765-square-foot store is one of the latest additions to the Pike & Rose development.
Ferzan Jaeger, a Turkish-born mother of two, founded Olive & Loom in 2016. The business curates home, lifestyle, and gift items from around the world and sells its own line of products across the U.S. and Canada. The goal: Take traditional, old-world goods and give them a fresh, modern update.
“We started our journey in 2016 inspired by the wonderful Turkish Baths/Hamam rooted in the rich history of the Ottoman Empire,” Jaeger said on the company’s website. We worked directly with independent manufacturers to commission a Modern Peshtemal; a soul-made, hand-loomed towel in current styles and colors. We completed our New Hamam experience with rich Olive Oil soap bars that are natural, moisturizing and soothing, and infused with wonderful fragrances.”
Olive & Loom is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
