Established in Turkey in 2012, and working amidst one of the most wasteful industries on the planet, Ikikiz focuses on natural materials, timeless design, and long-lasting craftsmanship. The word "ikikiz" means "two girls" in Turkish, which symbolizes the two female leaders behind the innovative sustainable fashion brand Ikikiz: Elvan and Meral. They are mothers, creatives and friends.
One of their specializations is a beautiful garment-dyeing technique, which means the fabric of the garment is cut and sewn, then dyed and washed (instead of being dyed then sewn). This creates a truly unique, vintage, pastel color palette. Their designs are spacious, and feature unique lines and edges that can adapt to different shapes and activities. They are an exceptionally hands-on design and creative duo, and Pokoloko is proud to be their exclusive Canadian avenue to slip into the work they create.
