Established by Yosi Barzilai in SoHo in 1989, Sarajo is a destination for those in search of exquisite antique textiles and ethnographica. Culled from the four corners of the earth, the gallery showcases an assortment of over 1,500 one-of-a-kind items. Over the course of nearly three decades, Sarajo has established itself as a treasured source for designers, collectors and museums.
In the mid-2000s, Sarajo relocated to Portland, Maine. It was while living in Portland that Barzilai realized a passion for antique textiles and began immersing himself in study and research. Subsequently its these textiles that have emerged as the primary of focus of his business. Having become an expert in the field, he is frequently consulted for his authoritative opinion.
2015 saw a return to New York for Yosi Barzilai, and in mid-2016, after nearly 10 years away, Sarajo re-opened in NYC at 31 Howard Street — a location only blocks away from its original SoHo gallery.
