SANKT is a sustainable fashion label established in Turkey in 2015 by sisters Merve and Hande. In 2016 The Aksu sisters laid out an ambitious plan to create an international womenswear brand. One that faced outward, utilising international design expertise while looking inward to have the designs realised relying on the wealth of artisans and ateliers found locally.
Sankt therefore set out to create simple, elegant, universally powerful designs with international ambitions yet with local values at it’s heart. The majority of materials are therefore sourced locally and responsibly, these are then given form and expression at local ateliers with whom the sisters enjoy a trusting and close relationship. Production and processes are always 100% transparent and carefully regulated to avoid waste and over production.
