We are Derya Aguday from Turkey and Fotis Merakos from Greece. We now live in Brooklyn, but we grew up surrounded by the traditional ethnic art of the Mediterranean. We stayed warm under handwoven blankets, our mothers would bring out handmade lace tablecloths for family holiday meals, embroidery decorated our grandmothers’ homes and our grandpas could make tables out of wood. That is how we learned to appreciate the “hand-made” and how our passion for traditional ethnic craftsmanship was born.

Later when one of us became an architect inspired by local wisdom and the other an entrepreneur with sustainable living sensitivities, we found that our combined expertise and interests have created the perfect environment for anatoli.co, a brand connecting conscious customers from the world with unique handcrafted Anatolian art.

We spent months traveling around the villages and towns of south-western Turkey in order to find the most authentic local artisan families, who run high-quality, eco-friendly and ethical productions. With their traditional looming techniques and our garment and pattern design, we are happy to be able to introduce the world to these unique items. In the age of robots and machines, we are proud to be bringing thousands years old authenticity from the hands of the masters to yours...

  • Our Necklaces and scarves feature Oya decorative edging and are hand-made by women in Anatolian villages.

    Oya lace, which appears all over Anatolia in various forms and motifs is how Anatolia’s thousand and one species of plants and gaily colored flowers are reborn in the imagination and inner eye of its women. The history of this decorative edging known in Europe as ‘Turkish lace’ is thought to date back as far as the 8th century B.C. to the Phrygians of Anatolia. 

    Traditionally, the headdresses and scarves women wore on their heads, the printed cloths, and prayer and funeral head coverings were decorated with various kinds of oya, which was also used on undergarments, to adorn outer garments, around the edges of towels and napkins and as a decorative element in many other places. In the Aegean region even men’s headdresses were decked with layers of oya.
