BEHIND THE LABEL
A mother-daughter collaboration BETWEEN TWO CITIES
324 is a seasonless accessories label founded by a Turkish mother-daughter duo. Anchored in classic designs, each style reinterprets a timeless shape with a youthful flair and handcrafted details.
Arzun - the mother - interior designer by trade, leads production in Istanbul. Bike - the daughter- a creative director, focuses on visual communications in New York. The pair co-designs each handbag together.
Our collection of handmade-to-order handbags are crafted in our atelier in Istanbul, allowing us to produce only what we know will have a home; creating less waste for the environment. We accept orders for a limited time each month, and your handcrafted handbag ships to you in 4 weeks. With a slower pace and a thoughtful approach to our production process, we hope to encourage a more considered way to shop.
By having our handmade-to-order collection available directly to you, we are able to offer the highest handcrafted quality at more affordable price points.
Handmade-to-order is also an invitation for you to become a part of the process. When you place your order, you can choose from a selection of stitchings to personalize your handbag. For questions or custom requests, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our collection of handbags that reimagine timeless classics are crafted with meticulous attention and subtle yet noteworthy details.
Our signature triangular piece was conceived from the idea of reducing waste and bringing purpose to even the smallest pieces of leather. During a process that requires four hours of meticulous reworking, each piece is crafted from layers of scrap leathers, which are then stitched together, shaped, sanded and then finished with hand-painted edges.
We work with locally-sourced and readily-available raw materials. Our leathers are byproducts of the food industry and we highlight natural fabrics like jute and untreated cotton canvas. All our hardwares are nickel-free and are custom made in a family-owned factory in Istanbul. We use world's finest zippers by YKK.
