Our Story

It all started in 2013 at the University of Warwick where Zeyd, the founder, during his studies at his home he was wearing the traditional style of dervish shoes called Kamarchin.

Then, a day spent in the capital of the UK, the idea to sell Kamarchin
for daily use became a reality. Wandering in the markets of London it
became clear that this idea may turn into a start-up that is needed.
Re-engineering the product and building the brand were the very first
steps to take place. Şahin, a London based Illustrator supported the
initiative with building the brand. With many thanks to his efforts
the brand was ready to begin.
Back in Istanbul, Zeyd met with his friends to re-engineer the
product. An architect, an economist and a culture specialist who all
took part in the process.
In 2015 we launched the Kamarçin brand
