Artisan Organization: Bambu Tekstil
It is little surprise that a culture famous for its bathhouses would also be renowned for its finely woven towels. Since 2004, when he established his small business Bambu Tekstil, Turkish artisan Oktak Esgin has been infusing longstanding traditions with global innovation.
After 14 years of working in the professional world, Oktak’s determination to bring more employment to his hometown led him to embark on his own venture. Oktak has successfully brought both new materials and new products to the market, and is constantly in search of new technologies to bring to his craft. He employs 45 members of his community.
This soft cotton hand towel is the result of Oktak’s dedication to traditional craft combined with an eye for inspiration from around the globe.
