Tara Folks is a designer accessories brand, founded by Central Saint Martins graduate Zeynep Gürsoy. It offers a collection of contemporary handbags with a Bohemian flavour. There is a wide range of options from leather beltbags to shoulderbags and backpacks.
The name is inspired from the classical Hollywood movie "Gone with the Wind" where the protagonist Scarlett always finds her own strength back in Tara plantation. Zeynep wishes that Tara Folks aspire women to discover their own magic, sense of authenticity and determination so that they become the woman they want to be.
Behind The Label
As Tara Folks we give great importance to our environment and try to make conscious choices in every detail to create a positive impact.
Our handbags are meticulously handcrafted and ethically produced in a second generation family owned factory in Istanbul. We purchase our raw materials locally and use a local photo studio for our campaign shoots to keep our carbon foot print low.
We try our best to be sensitive to animal welfare. We select the highest-grade hides come from animals that have been raised for the food industry. We do not use fur or the skins of exotic animals (such as crocodile or lizard).
Tara Folks accessories are all timeless pieces that last generations and we avoid over production.
Our small team is mostly women around the globe because we believe “when women support each other amazing things happen.”
Above all, we love what we do. #livethedayyouwant
