Tara Folks is an Istanbul-based contemporary designer accessories label, specializing in leather handbags made for life’s untamed souls. 

The Girl

Tara Folks Girls show a captivating contemporary-Bohemian style that is expressive, daring but still sweet. She follows her heart, takes risks and collects BIG dreams. She designs her own magical life and lives it freely.

The Story 

Zeynep Gürsoy’s fashion training began at Central Saint Martins Art and Design School in London where she studied "Applied Imagination in Creative Industries." Her career took a different route through London’s inspiring cosmopolitan culture. It was in these years she decided to set up her own independent business that reflects the power of the feminine through her own adventurous, wild spirit and fresh and unique style. 

The Values  

Each Tara Folks bag is meticulously pieced together using the finest materials in a second generation family owned factory in Istanbul so that we assure artisanal knowledge and cultivate innovative craftsmanship.

We purchase our raw materials locally and use a local photo studio for our campaign shoots to keep our carbon footprint low.

We try our best to be sensitive to animal welfare. We select the highest-grade hides that come from animals that have been raised for the food industry. We do not use fur or the skins of exotic animals (such as crocodiles and lizards).
