MEET THE BRAND THAT CARES
Summah is a dad and daughter duo independent company. They care about our community, environment and the way their business is run. They work with small artisanal businesses in Turkey where they come up with designs and collections. Each collection is ethically made and sustainably sourced creating pieces that are going to last a lifetime, with a minimal impact.
Each season they introduce new sustainable processes and work harder on supporting suppliers who are more efficient at minimizing environmental impact. Their pieces are inspired by nature and how to preserve and protect our eco system. All products are made from natural fibers that have zero added chemicals. Oeko tex fabric is fabric that has been certified free from hazardous chemicals and is therefore deemed safe.
They embrace slow fashion, releasing products only when they are 100% sure it is something they love and would have in their household for years to come. They are driven by the pursuit of an innate sense of style that defies age and time. They believe customers will have a product they can continue to love in their existing cupboard and pass down through the generations. Pieces that are carefully created and curated. A century old craft of making the turkish loom revived and recreating that craftmanship and artisanal trade.
When planning each collection they look at how they can minimise the negative impacts associated with manufacturing and ensure that all people involved are treated fairly and respectfully. Each factory has been visited and co-founder, Kirst is hands on with each member of production, they know them all personally – they are like family. They are committed to assisting and motivating them to enrich the lives of those who work on our all of our pieces.
Materials + Production
For our turkish towels, we have a selected few towels where we use gots cotton. Which is certified globally organic textile standards.
Most of their towels, throws and blankets are either 100% oeko tex turkish cotton, or have a linen cotton blend. Their commitment to sustainability runs through every layer of our ethos as well as our textiles, packing and curation which marry luxury with sustainability. All of their sunscreen bags are made from reclaimed fabric, last of the roll or rolls that are repurposed and resold from bigger factories.
Founder Kirsten resides between Istanbul and hand selects a beautiful luxe cotton homeware and beach essentials. Mark organises and arranges the integration between stock and runs the online store connecting customers around the world.
Summah brings a sense of inspired luxury to any summertime unwind. Their towels are multi-functional and practical, fast drying and super lightweight making the perfect travel companion.
