I was recently discovered a Turkish designer living in Berlin that made me swoon! The label is called Rita in Palma and is mostly fashion accessories though I’d love to see some of her designs for cushions in the living room or as shower curtains or even panels for the window. Beautiful! I found some scarves from her collection that I love, love, LOVE that I need to show you because I imagine framing one for the wall, wouldn’t that be lovely? Take a look…
Of course, I’m also impressed by her necklaces and bracelets which are a very fresh, modern interpretation of traditional Turkish embroidery. After my Istanbul vacation in 2010, I have been hoping to see more and more contemporary Turkish design take root and grow because I saw many beautiful things in tiny ateliers and shops that made my heart sing. With such a large Turkish population living in Germany, I’d ideally like to see more of this type of work being produced here locally – it is so inspiring!
