We take a contemporary and innovative approach to classic
enamelware and aim to produce a wide selection of premium
quality tableware with artisanal touches.
BORNN was founded in 2015 by two sisters Başak Onay and
Öykü Thurston who both have backgrounds in creative industries.
When they were global nomads growing up in Tokyo, Barcelona
and Los Angeles away from their home town of Istanbul, they
were exposed to different cultures and craftsmanship, which
aspired them to create their own company that brings together
years of developed skills and local heritage.
BORNN takes its inspiration from the fascinating history of
enamelware and by using traditional manufacturing techniques,
aims to produce modern, unique and hand crafted pieces to help
keep these skills alive.
All of our collections are produced in Istanbul by master artisans
and we seek to empower our community by developing new ways
for them to use their years gained knowledge.
