Behind Minimal Chaos

Sarah is a photographer and graphic designer based out of Philadelphia. Her dream from a young age was to own and operate a small business, but she never knew what that business would be. 

After the war began in Syria in 2010, Sarah and her family were no longer able to visit their homeland. Due to the ongoing conflict, her family trips were routed to Turkey, where many Syrian refugees have and continue to migrate to due to it sharing a border with Turkey. It may not be home, but it is at least a taste. 

During one of these trips and upon reflecting on her upbringing, what began to become clear was the constant of rugs throughout. Her father is a vast collector of Persian rugs and from a young age he shared his joy of searching and finding that perfect rug with her.


At the time, Sarah didn’t have the appreciation she has now. It was during these trips to Turkey that she learned the history of the heirlooms and the idea for Minimal Chaos started to form.

Minimal Chaos is the culmination of Sarah’s passions. It is her love for photography, design and travel all melded together to share her culture with all of you. For Sarah, each rug tells a story and she wants to help shape its history. But, the best part of all of this, is Sarah can now finally talk rugs with her dad and bond over their beauty together.
