We see all the artisans we cooperate with as our stakeholders and we make fair wages for their welfare as part of our sustainable production chain.
We do not employ child labor at any stage of production and we choose our suppliers by taking this principle into account.
Instead of releasing a new collection every month with commercial concerns, we create timeless designs with a well-thought-out story that can accompany you in your home for years.
We are aware of the damage caused by synthetic dyed textile products to the nature during the dyeing phase. We want to show that alternative home fashion is possible with the natural dye used in Anatolian lands for thousands of years.
Handan Loomworks is an Istanbul based slow home fashion brand, which brings an old craft into a part of modern city life by reviving the traditional handlooms with its original designs, creates artisan pieces for its own living spaces.
Based on the fact that we all struggle with improving our unique living spaces, the priority of the brand, which produces pillows and rugs, is to offer a new decoration experience that includes craft and design by differentiating from the uniform product understanding of the mass production logic, and to manufacture without damaging the nature, as much as possible, while aiming for this. Handan Loomworks, which adopts sustainable production as a principle in the modern world, where the usage frequency of raw materials obtained from petroleum and plastic is increasing, uses plant-dyed wool in all of its weaves, and produces a limited number of each product, believing in the power of slow fashion, without being a part of the excessive consumption cycle.
Handan Özcan, founder and designer at Handan Loomworks, collaborates with craftswomen who have traditionally woven in their villages for years, with the motivation to contribute to women's employment within the framework of ethical production principles in order to keep this craft alive.
