The brand Mehry Mu was created in 2011, in Istanbul. Founded by Gunes Mutlu, the accessories brand mixes traditional and modern elements for a truly unique result. With the Fey Box, Fey Envelope and the Cha Cha, the Turkish brand’s handbags are recognisable at first glance, with their wicker inserts and other sought-after materials.
After studying psychology, Gunes Mutlu created an online shopping site. But after struggling to find any bags she liked and wanted to put online, she took inspiration from ikats - the multicoloured woven fabrics that she found in the alleys of Istanbul's Grand Bazaar - and began to design accessories herself. She quickly became a success, and Mehry Mu handbags can now be regularly spotted on the arms of the most influential fashionistas.
