About WAW ALLAP
After immigrating to the United States in 1978, I soon realized the
difficulty of maintaining the customs of my heritage while trying to
assimilate into American culture. This dilemma, it seemed, was common
among my people: I feared that the Assyrian Nation, having no homeland,
would be lost in this vast, welcoming country. This motivated me to
become active in preserving over 7000 years of our rich culture for
The Assyrian people, being the first Christians,
have experienced persecution throughout history specially now in our
home land Iraq, and as a result we are scattered throughout the world.
Reaching our various communities presented a challenge. With the help of
the Internet, however, I was able to set up an online company in 1991,
Waw Allap, which is available to Assyrians worldwide.
Waw Allap, the
company, was created in 1984 and offered wearable promoting Assyrian
pride. In 1985, my services expanded to include designing the poster for
the San Jose Assyrian Convention.
In 1995, Waw Allap grew again to
incorporate a line of Assyrian artifact reproductions. All most every
piece is made in Waw Allap studio is a testament to the inspiration of
the original; its artistry is replicated to the minutest detail.
ambition for Waw Allap has always been a three-pronged goal:
preservation, quality, and commitment.
In the future, I foresee Waw
Allap becoming a resource base for Assyrian information, as well as
continuing to offer the finest quality in Assyrian merchandise.
Allap continues to expand, I hope its visitors will be patient with the
growing process. In the near future, the site will boast a wider
selection of books and music as well as several new additions to the
artifact collection. I invite Waw Allap visitors to check its progress
My dedication to the preservation of the Assyrian heritage
promises that this website will continue to flourish. I am open to any
suggestions to make this site a more valuable resource. Please feel

My God Bless
our Assyrian Nation
