We established Cooperative Studio in 2019 in order to support women labor all around Turkey.
As two very close friends our common dream was enabling women labor to earn the respect it deserves and bring their handicraft to light. We are reinterpreting so many handicrafts that are sinking into oblivion to answer today's needs by using traditional textiles . As we aim to enable these techniques to live for a longer time with us, we are growing each day together with our friends who support us, producers, very valuable artisans. Our production process becomes meaningful with slow fashion movement and zero waste philosophy.
In Cooperative Studio, fabrics we provide from local producers and recycled cotton turn into bags that will ease your daily life. We would like to make hand knitted booties and socks, crochets and point laces a part of your daily life. Dog sweaters that are knitted from wool with traditional techniques keep our little friends warm. Our collection that includes modern and simple elements becomes richer each day by adding a different value and product and provides for more families. The products you buy become a part of your daily life and you also contribute to the sustainability of local producers, women cooperatives and handicrafts that are sinking into oblivion.
We wish you a pleasant experience with our products, produced with materials and procedures respectful to nature, ecology, human beings and all other living creatures.
