I am originally from Istanbul, Turkey but was born in the United States. I moved back 8 years ago and am in love with California; living by the beach inspired me to create the lifestyle brand The Handloom. I design fabrics from scratch working with artisans in Turkeyʼs remote villages. I like to use neutral colors when turning my fabrics into ready-to-wear and beachwear. The Handloom brings a classic panache intertwining beauty and heritage – traditional Turkish fabrics and handmade goods crafted with a focus on detail and quality.
