Beste and Merve Manastır, as the co-founders of the brand and the daughters of one of the oldest handcraftsman and leather goods manufacturer in Istanbul, Turkey; have launched MANU Atelier in February 2014 under the umbrella of “Yeşim Çanta” which was established in 1976. The desire of presenting their father’s artisanship and unique talents in creating and manufacturing handcrafted leather goods; brought the sisters together as business partners.
The brand aims to preserve its loyalty to the old, while presenting its products to modern women of the new age by combining premium leather with pure handcraftsmanship.
