M I N Z K O U is an emerging brand that is inspired by the distinctive freedom of artistic expression seen on streets of North Williamsburg, Brooklyn and was born in New York. If there were a few words to define Minzkou that would probably be ‘high-vibing’, ‘ cosmic ‘ , ‘cheerful’ and ‘ a New Yorker ‘ .
The brand’s collections often incorporate nature motifs and themes into its pieces. It believes in the cyclical relationship humans have with the Earth, and therefore has made sustainability a pillar of Minzkou’s company philosophy. By using cruelty-free silks, naturally dyed fabrics, and upcycled materials through ethical practices, Founder / Creative Director Seray SACAN incorporates her eco-friendly ethos into each piece she designs. In addition to promoting sustainability, the brand is also known for its intricate weaving, high-level beading, knitting, and embroidery, most of which is done entirely by hand. That may be the reason why whoever tries on a Minzkou item their attitude changes completely right away because of experiencing total boost in confidence. Also the level of hand-craftsmanship is very high-end that when people see hundreds/thousands of beads done by hand on an item, they feel intimidated even to touch.
