Founder of Mert İpek

Our Mission

To produce high quality 100% natural and organic, creatively designed textile products and serve them to middle and high income level consumer groups who have sufficient knowledge and interest of natural/organic textile products at reasonable prices.


Since 1959 Mert Ipek is a company which is experienced in natural and organic fibres only.

We as a company are always aware of our most valuable sources. One of them is serving 100% natural and organic textile products to our customers.

In this long journey, silk has always been our favourite companion as a priceless gift of nature.

Silk is very special fibre in a sense that it is not so easy to produce and process the fabric… To work and serve Silk properly, there is a strong need for hard-work and long-time experience in order to get to know Silk’s unique nature and special structure better.

Doing business with natural fibers means Nature puts its own rules even before you have started the production. So technical abilities and standardization are always restricted in the production process… So the experience here, for us is a manner of recognition of self (your ability/ facilities/ improvements and progress) and your products (technical/ chemical/ biological structure) in a very detailded way.

We always appreciated the value of Nature. We do not dare to change its rules and its structure. We try to adapt our expectations to Nature’s rules. So we adapt ourselves and build a lifestyle above them. Our long journey and experiences show us the way and teach us know how.

We serve our products to our customers with this perception. So that our business has never been just business, but it is like how we want to see the world and how we can add value to it.

We inform our customers in detail about our products in terms of cultural, technical background and standards of their structure. We do not see our customers as tools to make more profit.
