Mizar & Alcor
Founded in Summer of 2016 on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, Mizar & Alcor represents the union of East and West as well as the integration of tradition into modern life. Their vision is to embrace forgotten skills by working closely with local artisans and simultaneously combining them with contemporary design, showcasing the beauty of unique and handmade textiles. By working in this way, Mizar & Alcor empowers small-batch production using locally sourced fibres and plant-based dyes making their processes both sustainable and ethical. The lightweight nature of these textiles also means they use less energy to wash and less material to weave, whilst also being created using linen and cotton, some fo the most biodegradable fabrics that exist. Mizar & Alcor combine elegance and functionally with ethical production to support local economies as a much needed, welcome change to mass-production.
