Mizar and Alcor Sapphire Towel
Sapphire Towel reflects the minimal lines of the contemporary era and the earthy texture of the Mediterranean.
Handwoven by artisans in Anatolia using locally sourced raw cotton/linen blend.
At Interior Monologue, we believe handmade is the best made. Our mission is to provide a collection of makers that you can trust – handmade excellence and ethical production. We think it’s important to understand who made the things we love. Our hope is that this collection connects you directly with our favorite makers and their one of a kind stories.
Mizar and Alcor utilizes artisans in Anatolia and locally sourced raw cotton and linen blends. Their textiles are then handwoven and hand-dyed. These ethically sourced materials are combined with contemporary inspiration, elegantly merging the easiness of linen and the minimal lines of a more modern look.
MAKER STORY: Mizar and Alcor
Mizar & Alcor was founded in 2016 as a way to merge the union of East and West. Founded on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, they embrace artisanal tradition combined with contemporary designs and aim to combine elegance and functionality. They are often inspired by Mediterranean and African cultures and want to weave tradition back into modern life.
They work hand in hand with local artisans who are committed to the craftsmanship and its production. Everything is ethically produced to support the local economies — a welcome change to this world of mass production. Their textile partners are engaged in weaving and silk farming to restore and improve the potential of Anatolia. They utilize different generations and family members to maintain their heritage and complete the process of the locally sourced cotton and linen. This process transfuses the valuable tradition into future generations and praises the beauty of a unique handmade item.
”I followed the school only until 7th grade, as work and education didn’t go well together those days. Instead I used to help my father and my elder brothers at the weaving. Playing with the wheel of the loom was my favourite play as a child. My father made me love this craft that I have been passionate about and I have devoted myself to it since I weaved my first piece of textile at the age of 14.” – Ali
