From Turkey to San Francisco to Florence…

Hailing originally from Turkey, both Orcun and Elif now reside in Florence, Italy. They grew up with their mother as a top seamstress in Turkey, and this is how they mastered all of their traditional hand-made techniques. This has been their main source of inspiration.

Travelling and living all over the world is also a great part of their inspiration. You can understand this easily just by looking at some of their designs.

Intertwining the traditional techniques handed down from his mother and the many techniques taught from experts from around the world, Orcun’s Onique designs are truly one of a kind.
