Our Ground



The spark that ignited Meraki came to life when Penelope moved with her family to Istanbul in 2019, where they later launched their atelier. Imbued with the rich history and enchanting traditions of Turkey, they found themselves immersed in the vibrant tapestry of Turkish craftsmanship. 


Despite the challenges posed by the global lockdowns, Penelope and Virginia seized the opportunity to collaborate with skilled artisans, sourcing the finest textiles and sketching prototypes.


Meraki Artisanal stands as a testament to the power of passion, creativity, and cultural fusion



Our ethos is one of sustainability, empowerment, and inclusivity. We collaborate with skilled artisans, honoring their heritage while embracing innovation. From luxurious silk dresses adorned with intricate embroidery to ethereal cotton tops in vibrant hues, every piece tells a story of beauty, resilience, and the magic of creativity.


Meraki Artisanal Design embodies a commitment to empowerment and sustainability, transcending traditional fashion paradigms. Virginia and Penelope's dedication to collaborating with female artisans reflects their belief in fostering women's talents, later extending their support to include talented male artisans who share their values. 

This promise of inclusivity and empowerment permeates the brand's production process, prioritizing fair wages, safe conditions, and ethical treatment of workers across all levels of production.

Through measures such as efficient production processes, pre-order systems, and the use of environmentally friendly materials like organic cotton and recycled fabrics, Meraki minimizes waste and reduces its environmental impact. As a sustainable luxury brand, Meraki sets a new standard in the fashion industry, each piece a testament to the brand's commitment to craftsmanship, quality, and ethical practices. 

By celebrating cultural heritage, supporting local communities, and championing sustainability, Meraki shapes a brighter, more inclusive future for the industry.
