Rachel Farah's Custom Travel Consultations

Excited about planning your trip to Portugal but could use a little help with the details? I am now offering custom travel consultations to help you experience artisan Portugal.


My story

Born and raised in California, I grew up on my grandmother Farah’s tales of her life on the road; the daughter of an Iraqi Jewish traveling trader, Farah's family traveled throughout the Middle East and Asia finding and selling exquisite artisan goods. I took the plunge to bring the family tradition back to life with Farah Trading Co. Thank you for your support!

The Story of The Original Farah

This is the incredible story of my grandmother Farah, and this business' namesake, who was born in 1910 in Hong Kong to the Nissim family, Iraqi/Indian Jewish traders.  Their lineage has its roots in the Sephardic Jewish diaspora from Portugal and the Iberian peninsula in the late 1400s.
