At their very core, Mehry Mu is a brand based out of Istanbul that sells bags. But really–the brand is so much more. It creates handbags with a ‘soul’–a beautiful combination of expert craftsmanship and premium materials.
“Mehry” in Persian means ‘the sun’. Mu comes from Mutlu, the last name of the designer, which in Turkish means ‘happy’. A happy combination of designs that bring joy. Each bag has its own soul, story and identity.
Mehry Mu collections are feminine, chic and sleek. They can fit almost every style, giving your look a luxury flair.
A Luxe Appeal
Using high-quality leather and materials, Mehry Mu creates bags that are luxurious, beautifully handcrafted and unique. The Turkish brand tells a story through their products; a story which focuses on the artisans, the material and the inspiration.
Each collection is unique and the range of colours and patterns is diverse. Find tones of walnut wood, purple, black, white, and more, along with patterns, embroideries, beads, and inscriptions.
Variety Of Materials
Mehry Mu collections are made with a wide array of materials. Their list includes leather, suede, velvet, wool, and satin. You can purchase not only mini bags, totes, buckets, clutches but also purses to combine with them!
This Turkish handbag brand hand-makes products using locally sourced materials and employing Turkish craftsmen.
Although initially the brand started off by creating pieces that met the ‘East meets West’ philosophy, the inspiration now drawn from Greek islands, love stories in castles, stones with healing powers and a modern vintage aesthetic.
The bags are locally produced by artisans from different fields; a collaboration with raw talent and extremely high quality.
The History Of Mehry Mu
Güneş Mutlu founded the brand in 2010. The designer and founder was born and raised in Istanbul. Growing up, she was often inspired by the mythical quality of the ancient architecture and legends of her hometown. After she struggled to find gorgeous bags at affordable prices, she decided to launch her own.
Ensuring that she supported local artisans, the brand creates unique, artisanal handbags which are made by Turkish craftspeople.
“Mehry Mu is walking the path of storytelling through bags: this comes with working with and empowering artisans, using unexpected materials together, and offering handmade designs that are well-made, unique, timeless, and exciting,” says Günes Mutlu, the brand’s founder in an interview with V Magazine.
Mehry Mu not only makes artistic collaborations but also connects to humanitarian activities. The brand donates to a charity for kids who live under child protection.
