3rd Culture Enamelware & Greeting Cards

3rd Culture is an Istanbul-based decoration brand and concept store by product designer Zeynep Lale Rende and photographer Emre Rende. We offer a collection of unique furniture, photography, gifts and personal accessories under the brand’s “Inspired by the World, Created in Istanbul” guideline.

The 3rd Culture brand was created to highlight and celebrate the diversity of world cultures. We devise our collections using patterns, colours, motifs, fabrics, faces and streetscapes we have personally encountered and recorded. All our products are unique to the 3rd Culture brand, created and designed in Istanbul and produced by local artisans and craftsmen in Istanbul's historic Beyoglu neighbourhood, where our concept store is also located.

Durable and hard-wearing, yet beautiful and functional, we are talking about enamelware products.

3rd Culture design colourful enamel products are just the statement piece for any table whether you use their enamel cups, enamel mugs or enamel pots.

An enamel jug can make a big difference. You can choose to serve drinks for your guests or to show off a bunch of flowers using the 3rd Culture enamel jug as a vase. Or an enamel tray… how does loading up a delightfully designed round tray with a pot of coffee, tea, or a delicious slice of cake sound?

3rd Culture also designs hand screen printed cards inspired by symbols and motifs from Indian, Turkish and West African visual Arts. These unique handmade greeting cards would use perfectly as Chrismas cards.
