“Deeds are a person’s mirror, mere claims do not heed.”
Our story began in 1986 in Istanbul with jewellery design. On one hand, we were supplying to the leading fashion retail outlets in Turkey and abroad, and on the other, we were gathering products to display at our sales outlets from lands as far as India.
And after a long, long time…
We took our place at etsy in 2011, established our home-made bag and other designs. With that, the story of “Ottobags,” born in a simple apartment flat in Istanbul, became the first step in achieving a dream – a dream which takes its inspiration from life, and which knows no boundaries thanks to our limitless imagination – and turned into a reality when our bags reached all corners of the world.
Manufactured in small quantities at our workshop as well as those who share the same manufacturing ideas with us, our bags were dreamt of, designed, their fabric and accessories are chosen, and were brought to life with a fine taste and a particular attention to details just for you.
We are very happy now that our bags will meet you!
