I am an independent clothing designer from Istanbul who is inspired by a variety of things. Thoughts of childhood, color, nature, texture and pattern are all things I love! I have a studio with a sewing machine,an overlock and a knitting machine.
I knit on the same machine my mother had when I was a very little girl. A machine operated by hand for each row; I move its carriage right to left and left to right! It's much quicker than hand knitting, but the garment is still made solely by hand.
I began teaching sewing classes as my desire to refrain from mass production increased. My hope is to encourage other people to make their own clothes.
