Born to an Iranian mother and British father, Touran was brought up to appreciate and respect different cultures and customs. From early on, Touran had two strong passions: history and beautiful jewellery. Having lived in both Iran and Turkey, she was soon fascinated by their culture and ancient treasures.
Touran began designing and making her own jewellery from a very early age. She graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a degree in European history with French and Spanish and immediately set up Firouzeh.
Through Firouzeh, Touran hopes to bring to a wider audience a side of Iranian and Byzantine culture which is often forgotten in the current turmoil of the region; the rich history, creativity and art which she loves.
Meet Touran Reddaway, the latest up and coming jewellery designer to take residency in our Leblas boutique. The British designer born to an Iranian mother and a British father, has drawn on the beauty of the finest Byzantine and Persian treasures to create the Firouzeh range – a collection of handmade 18-carat gold jewellery that combines symbolic forms from old customs and beliefs with a modern collection of exquisite designs.
