Meet the Makers

Lüks is proud to partner with some of the most talented master weavers and family run textile ateliers in the world, whose priceless skills have been passed down through many generations. This knowledge and passion is interwoven into the products they create, We hope you enjoy reading about the individuals who are responsible for bringing Lüks to life and hope you'll treasure our products for many years to come.

  • The Büyükasiks are master weavers from Hatay in Southern Turkey. Renowned for cotton growing, makes it the perfect home for their atelier, which is run with by father & son team Abdulvahap & Mete. True to family & community spirit, Uncle Vahit & long time family friend Mehmet (the happiest weavers we know) are also valued employees. Matriarch Bedia, is responsible for hand finishing & quality control whilst Mete’s wife Özlem, manages all our requests with resolute professionalism. Our Kümsal peshtemal is named after their beautiful daughter.

  • Irem & Tolga moved from the bustle of Istanbul, to Bodrum a small town on the Aegean coast, looking for a slower pace of life after the birth of their first child. Irem’s family are from Buldan - the heart of textiles in Turkey, so it's fair to say that weaving is in her DNA. Partnering with 3 local family ateliers they produce a stunning range of heritage weaves including our Damla, Ferah & Belgin ranges . Irem & Tolga have a sharp eye both for detail & colour & we are privileged to have worked with them since Lüks began. Outside of work they are also prolific cheese makers!

  • Ümut & Mustafa are our peshtemal heroes. They run a small & perfectly formed atelier in Denizli, which employs 2 master weavers who run the looms & 4 skilled women who oversee cutting, sewing & finishing. In true community spirit & when the need arises, they call upon other local family ateliers to ensure that both deliveries and quality standards are met. Ümut & Mustafa produce our Cemile, Eren, Emre, Nil, Pelen & Tulin collections as well as (of course) his name sake blanket ‘The Ümut’.

  • Gaffar is our partner in Kas. An astute and creative businessman, he runs his family business with his brother, and provides a range of unique quality designed products, sourced from local ateliers that are the envy of many household brands. Gaffar is responsible for our stunning, limited edition Lale blankets, which are a vibrant explosion of meticulously woven colour ways. Each is handmade by a skilled master craftsman and takes over a fortnight each to perfect.

  • Barine is the newest member of the Lüks family & was founded by Denizli based textile designer Seyma. Barine blends traditional weaving technique with modern methods, to produce a stunning range of contemporary textiles. All of which make beautiful additions to any home. We are working with Barine to provide you with modern & eclectic geometric prints rich in Turkey's cultural narrative.
    The Arkan throw, Cari & Ekin peshtemals & our Hills, Zig-Zag & Diamond cushions mark our first range & we look forward to many more.
