GRAV GRAV is an Istanbul-based woodworking studio. Inspired by nature, I form uniquely spirited wooden handbags, handcrafted with natural textiles like walnut, oak and beech. Wooden pocketbooks, clutches and knapsacks are adorned with needlepoint, embroidery and leather details. Each component is a piece of wearable art.
In my patterns, I tried to connect both of traditional and modern ideas but don’t break up with current fashion chassis. In my views, timber and leather show us a perfect coincide. They have a great unison. Too, I would like to remind traditional and nostalgic cross stitch to upgrade current fashion. I use simply nature patterns on the bags.
I use oak, walnut and beech timber. I conceive every tree’s texture has its unique storey and it embodies the soul of quality. I am enchanted by this occult!
