Meet the Artist:
Neslihan Algunerhan, is a textile designer from Istanbul. Having received her Fine Arts degree with the emphasis on Traditional Turkish hand-crafts, as well as studies in carpets and rugs. Neslihan further mastered serigraphy techniques with renowned artists in Istanbul.
After designing for a home textile brand for a few years, Neslihan started to shape the Nauna brand; Linen prints with molds using water-based paints.
At a time when everything is consumed so quickly, printing with a traditional technique and by hand was obviously very good for her. Every fabric has traces of nature. Her inspiration comes from the culmination of patterns, colours, photography, drawings and paintings and most importantly, mother nature. In her unique creations she revisits the traditional patterns and reinterprets them by applying natural paint-print techniques that are rarely used in the modern world.
