Sisters Begum and Duygu Ozturk launched their brand Harem London in 2015 by looking to both their Turkish and British heritages as inspiration. Starting with luxurious Turkish Hammam towels and bathrobes, the brand grew to include resort wear and now, Harem London has expanded to feature one of a kind women's streetwear. Sustainability came naturally for the brand with the use of organic cotton from the fields of Anatolia, and by collaborating with Turkish artisans, at the brand's core. With the growing demand for their streetwear with a Turkish twist, the brand will soon be expanding even further to also include menswear.
With Duygu's background in design and Begum's business management experience, the sisters have not only taken their cross-cultural upbringing, but have also combined their individual strengths to overcome all the many challenges that arise with launching and growing a fashion brand. Initial rejection and setbacks further motivated Duygu and Begum to forge ahead, grow with their brand and learn something new every day. Inspired by strong, independent and successful women, the sisters prove that by sticking to your vision and challenging yourself, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.
