Mother Tongue presents a collection of one-off treasures, hand-sourced from Artists & Makers around Turkey, bringing you unique objects that tell a story. The motivation behind our business is to promote a better understanding of Turkey’s rich heritage at the same time as advocating slow and meaningful consumption.
Hi, I'm Melis, the Founder of Mother Tongue. I'm a Turkish artist living in London with a playful, experimental style of work, working in mediums of painting, jewellery metalwork, leatherwork, photography and more. With Mother Tongue I curate a collection of handmade treasures from Turkey, in exploration of my Turkish identity.
