Başak Baykal's journey from Istanbul's Grand Bazaar to London immingles design principles with the heritage between two destinations. In this journey that carries the local beyond the cultures, the sources of inspiration are nourished by nature, literature, the aesthetics of the Grand Bazaar, the past and the future.
The precious stones embellishing the designs, glorify local resources and add value to the unique designs.The transfer of arts and crafts from a deep-rooted past to new generations, supporting local artisans, is transformed into an art work with high-quality materials obtained in an ethical and sustainable way.
The technical knowledge of hundreds of years of the Grand Bazaar come together with the notion of modern design and form Başak Baykal's aesthetic understanding. Each design is embellished with rare and high-carat gemstones. The pieces, which are works of art, are no longer a matter of style with Başak Baykal designs, they symbolize the stance of a local and deep-rooted heritage.
