Established in 1996 by Seref Ozen and Mustafa Gokhan Demir, cocoon has grown to become a renowned Turkish brand with the slogan "Seeing comes before words." Originally specialising in Central Asian costumes, textiles and rugs, an experiment in making brightly coloured felt hats inspired by traditional tribal headwear led the store to merge its old and antique items with contemporary inspired pieces.
cocoon now has four branches in Istanbul, including in the Grand Bazaar, Arasta Bazaar and surrounding area. As well as its large selection of caps, shoes, coats, rugs, kilims and other textiles from Central Asia, Persia, the Caucasus, Anatolia and Syria, cocoon stocks an exciting range of handmade felt hats, handbags, jewellery and other accessories in a range of bright colours.Felt is one of the oldest textiles in existence, and it has served many practical and decorative uses for around 8,000 years.
Other eyecatching pieces include tie-dyed silk-cotton fabrics, which can be used to make clothing or as wall hangings. cocoon also stocks a selection of boutique souvenirs such as cushions and more. Many beautiful items from their stores can also be bought from cocoon's etsy store/a>.
