Founded in 2012, we are a two person team based in Istanbul, Turkey. Our own journey started out as a humble hobby, making small leather goods. We can trace back our memory to the very first item we ever produced; a simple journal cover. Fast forward several years, and we've been fortunate to turn this passion into a thriving business. We love working with all natural aging materials like leather, brass and wood. There's something magical about the ability of these natural materials to majestically absorb time, only to turn more beautiful with age.
Galen is the name of the our favourite precious stone and also, the more commonly referred name of the famous philosopher, Claudius Galenus, who was born in Pergamon (present day Bergama,Turkey - the famous city of the leather).
