This collection resulted from my travels through Istanbul in 2011. They are shown there alongside the architectural elements that I was inspired by, which includes the Harem Apartments at the Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar, and my favorite mosques.
Of this collection, the Suleyman and Suleyman Garden remain among my most popular styles, made by hand from mostly reclaimed textiles.
The journals for the trip that inspired this collection are now available at Daveno Travels, where I am reissuing them as Director’s Cuts with full text and previously unpublished photos. I hope you will continue reading the back stories behind my creations.
