With her brand, INCOMPLIT, Öykü’s working method is based on transforming stories of disadvantaged kids into wearable forms in a sustainable way. Öykü’s tote bag is inspired from different phases of the moon eclipse and cotton fields, showing the multi-layered structure of Harran with its material mix and usage. She will also be working with the local women for the embroidery used on the bag’s surface.
