Manu Atelier Woman
Founded by sisters Beste and Merve Manastir, Manu Atelier is a treasure trove of inherited know-how. As children, they observed their father craft leather goods in one of Turkey’s most important artisan workshops. Today, the label integrates these traditional techniques into a sustainable production cycle, all whilst remaining a family business (each prototype is signed off by their father before construction can begin in the Istanbul-based atelier). With a contemporary approach to aesthetics, expect cylindrical styles, panelled baguettes and structured cross body bags that are detailed with ruching and polished chain straps.
