Sanayi 313 started as a concept store in 2014, before expanding into an accessories collection of shoes and bags a year later. Childhood friends Serena Uziyel and Enis Karavil are behind the brand that began to define a hip neighborhood in Istanbul, the industrial Maslak Oto Sanayi district.
Karavil, an interior architect, wanted to create a space that mixed design, fashion, and food. A collaboration with Uziyel, who graduated from Parsons and worked at brands like Zara and Escada—a luxe line of mules, boots, and bags—soon blossomed to complement what was already offered in the store.
The shoes are made in Italy and embroidered (to a maximum effect) in India.
