In Harmony with Nature
After a lifetime as a professor of sociology, the living Nature called me to a tiny village on the mountains along the Aegean coast in Turkey. My husband and I went there for a vacation, loved the place, and mentioned it to the owner of the restaurant where we were having dinner one evening. She told the local realtor, and the rest happened very fast.
It took a few years of working over the weekends to get our mini-farm ready and to build a tiny farmhouse in the local style. Finally we moved to the farm as our permanent home. With the help of the neighbors, we acquired a few goats and sheep as well as other animals, and got started.
We learned along the way. I also studied with experienced weavers and did an internship at a farm in Germany, where I lived during my years in academia. Now I teach 3 days a week and I am a shepherd, weaver, spinner and fashion designer for the rest of the time.
This little village is my inspiration and North Star, where I am always reminded that in Nature is the source of truth and beauty, and I strive to create beautiful clothes that reflect the purity and simplicity of the natural world.
Owner, Designer, Maker
Designer, weaver, knitter, shepherd, academician... Elcin loves to partner with nature in the creative process, from raising the sheep and goats, to making yarn and fabric with their fiber, to designing the final product that you see here.
The Fiber Girls
They make the fiber that you wear in my finished products. Isn't it a great feeling to know the origins of your clothes?
Off We Go to Pasture!
As soon as I start on the path to pasture, everyone falls in line behind me -- the sheep, the goats, the donkey (flock protector) and the dogs.
Lord Protector Of The Flock
Big job for a little guy, but he does it well.
My Husband Yalcin, Me and Friends

Here we are in front of our tiny house on the farm.
DOGACollection is my line of hand-crafted women's fashions from organic textiles. Every item in my shop starts out as the wool from my sheep, organic cotton or linen that I weave into cloth on a hand-loom, and natural yarn dyed with vegetal dyes. I design and weave the fabric or make the yarn, and produce the finished product.
When you buy something from DOGACollection, you own a piece of the earth. You know its source. You own a beautiful piece of craftsmanship with heirloom value.
I welcome you to browse and learn about DOGACollection.
