I first met Cansu in April and was immediately inspired by her story. Originally from Turkey, she currently resides in a beautiful bohemian-styled bungalow in Echo Park with her adorable pup.
Cansu founded The Handloom, an apparel and home goods line ranging from gorgeous Turkish towels to flowy kimonos. Despite the fact that all of the pieces are hand loomed by skilled, local artisans in remote villages of Turkey, they all have an easy-breezy Southern Californian flair to them.
We decided to shoot the personal branding session in Cansu’s home and her studio (located in her backyard) as this is where she live-works, and both her home as well as her working studio exudes the bohemian lifestyle and aesthetic represented in her brand. Cansu is such a positive and passionate force...it was such a delight to spend the afternoon and co-create with her.
