About

I am a graphic designer who lives in Turkey, a lovely country which bridges Europe and Asia. I am a wife to a wonderful man and a mother of super sweet ginger boy cat. I have two university degree. Also my parents are artists too. My father is graphic designer and my mother is ceramic artist and sculpture.

At 2010, my husband and I resigned our jobs and started this unique project; Pinara Design. We both love history and Turkey is a huge historical country. There are so many different ancient civilizations in our land. Lycia, Hittite, Ottoman Empire, Ion, Urartu, Byzantine... My husband is a professional photographer. So we are traveling a lot around Turkey and visiting ancient cities, historical places and museums. Also we are searching for different Turkish traditional fabrics which are slowly forgotten. We think we have much to learn from ancient history and art…

So we are traveling a lot around Turkey and visiting ancient cities, historical places and museums. Also we are searching for different Turkish traditional fabrics which are slowly forgotten. We think we have much to learn from ancient history and art.

Our intention is revive some forgotten designs of the past by using eco-friendly materials on jewelry and scarves. Diversity of Anatolian history and artistic creations are giving me the opportunity for using different techniques and materials. There is a historical tale behind my every design which I use some techniques like Crochet, screen print, wire wrap, transfer print:
- Some of my crocheted earrings designs are inspired by Hittites goddess idols from Alacahoyuk.
- Some of my necklaces are inspired by Ottoman tile motifs and Ottoman miniatures.
- Some of my scarves are inspired by Lycia tombs reliefs

We send every Pinara Design product with their own certificates to you for sharing every information at all stages of our searching and designing.

All my items are made with lots of love and lots of care.
Pinara Design is our dream to make come true and we hope you like it.
