Manu Atelier


As accomplished academics, Merve and Beste Manistir’s path to founding MANU Atelier was an exciting journey of styling, study, and travel. Growing up, they were exposed to the raw talent of their father, one of Turkey’s oldest artisans, who created leather goods by hand at his atelier in Istanbul.

MANU Atelier was founded in February 2014. The brand’s name is taken from the word ‘manufacturing’. It also reflects the families surname ‘Manastır’ and added on Atelier to include the artisan style. For the sisters, it was always paramount to keep the Turkish story alive and their father’s talent at the forefront of the brand.
