UKFT Rise – Get To Know Multilocal
Meet Lale Inceoglu (46), Elif Yilmaz (45), founders of Multilocal, the ethically made home textiles and apparel brand that honours the maker, and the earth.
The collections bring together the founders’ love of the creative and artistic juxtaposition and energy of the worlds where we are ‘locals’. Growing up in their home city of London, spending many years in Istanbul where their familial roots lie, and having also lived in several European countries, multiculturalism is their identity and at the heart of what they do.
Lale and Elif take inspiration from their diverse backgrounds and their Anatolian roots. Their work is a modern interpretation of age old textile traditions, emphasising texture, tactility, quality, timelessness and longevity.
With everything they produce, their intention is minimal impact on the planet, regeneration of artisan skills, and creating luxury heirloom items that will stand the test of time. They also source, restore and reuse vintage textiles to produce pieces that will be re-loved and cherished for many years to come, while honouring the unique journey of each piece.
