Çiğdem Kacar Selimoğlu | Founder of K’ai&Vrosi

K’ai&Vrosi was established in 2018 by Çiğdem Kacar Selimoğlu, an Istanbul-based design professional with strong family links to the Black Sea. 

Çiğdem worked with a number of high end Italian brands after graduating in Italian studies, but after the birth of her son decided to pursue her dream of setting up a business that draws on her passion for Turkish heritage.

K’ai and Vrosi both mean ‘good’ in the Laz language of the Black Sea, and K’ai&Vrosi’s beautiful products bring the goodness of the Black Sea – and in particular the traditions of handloomed peshtemal fabric made by the few remaining craftsmen -into a collection of modern and stylish handbags and accessories.
