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 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 along with her husband’s entrepreneurial spirit to create her first jewelry line. The 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 her jewelry, she and Caglar set up a brick and mortar storefront bearing their last name, KISA, which is now located in the Gaviidae Building of Minneapolis inspired by our own lives between two cultures — Minnesota and Turkey.
