The Magic Babouches of Sanayi 313
The wide array of hand-crafted designs blend the best of traditional Ottoman weaving and embroidery techniques with a contemporary attitude. Rich hues and fabrics give almost a guilty pleasure to the user and make you feel like a sultana for one day! The fashion label behind the inspiring line of slippers is Sanayi 313, which teamed up with local designer Serena Uziyel to open a concept store in a former car repairing shop at the reviving industrial zone of Maslak. The store combines interior design, an accessories line of shoes and bags that ended up at more than 50 international outlets from Net-a-Porter to Bergdorf Goodman, as well as a health-conscious restaurant serving seasonally inspired dishes at breakfast and lunchtime.
