Istlondon was founded by John and Melis Micklethwaite in 2013 in İstanbul.
The Alaçatı branch that opened later on is a colorful wonderland, full of beautiful handmade porcelain serving items in pastel tones.
They have a large variety of almost paper thin porcelains with clean forms that can fit in seamlessly with any home interior. Their main inspiration comes from shapes instead of patterns and motifs, so their designs are quite simplistic and minimal.
Be warned though – when you see the pastel yellow, gray, green, blue, cream, indigo colored plates, bowls, cups and jugs, you may want to buy all sizes and designs. All products are designed by John & Melis and carefully hand made in their workshop.
All the pieces in the shop are just as much art as they are for actual everyday use.
