About

Bustling in a gigantic city day to day, we find solace and mystery in our small garden we keep secret and let grow wild!

We're two people:

Mom - designer of hand-loomed textiles
Daughter - artist

Our handwork is an invitation to our garden. It offers a sense of comfort, discovery and warmth of heart.


Where we live:

Mom - lives and works in Istanbul but also has to make a home of Paris.
Daughter - loves the two seas of Istanbul, but could not exist there if not for the quiet house our great grandmother once built. She also calls the mountains and plains of Colorado a home.

What we like:…

About

Bustling in a gigantic city day to day, we find solace and mystery in our small garden we keep secret and let grow wild!

We're two people:

Mom - designer of hand-loomed textiles
Daughter - artist

Our handwork is an invitation to our garden. It offers a sense of comfort, discovery and warmth of heart.


Where we live:

Mom - lives and works in Istanbul but also has to make a home of Paris.
Daughter - loves the two seas of Istanbul, but could not exist there if not for the quiet house our great grandmother once built. She also calls the mountains and plains of Colorado a home.

What we like:

Compliments of our day-lives and day-jobs; we are in love with, and are at all times surrounded by natural materials. Be it hand-loomed silk, hand-dyed wool, alpaca or angora, we yearn for and try to provide friends, family and clients with the luxury of being encased in exquisite textures.


What else we like:

Good paper, good food, old growth trees, words (both random and hand-picked). Rocks, numbers, bees, organic architecture, letter writing. Anything wood, anything wintery. Islay malts, coccoons, Turkish Etymology, the violin, and the sea (always, the sea - as we're Istanbul girls, true-to-form.)


ONOK - what does it mean?

In ancient Turkish lands, during the days of horsed female warriors, wise queens and traveling troubadours;
ON (literally, 'Ten') meant 'Whole'.
and OK (literally 'Arrow') meant 'Human'. (As only humans can truly define and alter the courses of their lives.)
the phrase ONOK defined a state of being whole, of finding the truth and being one with the universe.
