Our beginnings.
The story of KISA begins with our fearless leader, Emily. She studied abroad in Turkey and from the moment she landed, she knew her life was going to be transformed. It was a sensory explosion of traditional crafts, history, colors, textures, and food. She quickly fell in love with Turkish culture, art, jewelry, fashion and eventually, her husband, Caglar Kisa. They lived there for 5 years, then made their way back to her home in Minnesota - but she couldn’t erase the newly rooted love for Turkey.
She brought together her passion for creating and art with her husband’s entrepreneurial spirit to create her first jewelry line. This crocheted jewelry is inspired by the trim that bordered village women’s headscarves, and is hand-crafted by a collective of women in Istanbul.
After she launched the jewelry line, she and Caglar set up a brick-and-mortar storefront bearing their last name, KISA. It was located in Gaviidae Common in Minneapolis and inspired by their lives between two cultures — Minnesota and Turkey.
