About Ipek Akarca
Akarca’s textile journey began over 30 years ago with an education on Fabric Design in the Fine Arts Academy of Textiles. She started her professional career as a textile designer. Her interest in every stage of production led her to textile production first and expanded to the purchasing and exportation of textiles. Soon after, she established her own independent textile purchasing office. During this time, she supported the collection phases of many luxurious brands.
With her longstanding experience in the field, she transformed her works into a design studio that merges art and production in 2010. Since then, she has been continuing to produce special collections created with her unique silk fabricartworks.
