As a young girl growing up in Turkey, I remember my grandmother dyeing her own cotton and yarns. I remember my mother making beautiful embroideries and most of my clothing growing up. I remember street vendors hand-making what seemed to be anything that could be transformed from cotton or fabrics. It felt like everywhere I turned my head, rich textiles were in front of me. It wasn’t until I moved to Los Angeles in my adult years that I yearned for this seemingly integral aspect of my old home and upbringing.
My goal, above all, is to provide high-quality Turkish towels and clothing sourced fairly from trusted craftsmen at affordable prices. This meant that I would buy from places I knew; therefore, all my suppliers are individuals that I have met personally in Turkey—all masters of their craft. And because I was able to meet them, I have hand-picked every design and even collaborated on specific pieces like the Abundance Throw Blanket.
I started off with a stand in a local farmer’s market. Engaging with my customers was a facet of my new career journey that I instantly clicked with. Sharing the stories behind my products and connecting with them on that level was a wonderfully enriching experience for myself and my clientele, as they kept coming back! As my customer base kept growing, moving operations online was instinctive.
I felt like as part of moving online, I wanted to facilitate the same buying experience as if you were to come to my stand at the farmer’s market—conversational and friendly. That’s why you’ll notice on all my products a “Seller’s Note” which are all the additional ways I like to use or style each item. These are all products I believe in and I know you will too.

The beauty of Turkish towels is versatility. Each product can be used interchangeably depending on your lifestyle needs. However, each product has unique qualities that will make them best suited for specific purposes in your home.
Turkish Towels have been globally recognized for their high quality, sustainability, and natural antimicrobial traits. They have the highest absorbency, dry quickly, and are made to not only withstand many items of washing but actually become softer over time.
Hospitality experts know the impression a soft, plush towel can make on a guest. Think of your favorite hotel or Airbnb you’ve stayed in–it’s the special attention to detail that adds such a memorable touch to the experience.
It’s easy to recreate that same feeling at home. Your favorite towels can be your every day or your own special touch for when you have guests over your home.
In-home decor, their lightweight and low-maintenance care make them an easy way to create a cozy moment, refresh seasonal decor, and reflect your personal style. They are excellent as blankets for the foot of your bed, folded over a sofa, or draped on your favorite reading chair.
For a lifestyle on the go, almost all of our throws are great to have on hand as a picnic or beach blankets. They can even double as an easy wrap or shawl in chilly evenings!
