The Fertile Crescent, the Cradle of Civilisations: Mesopotamia, the area in which the earliest known human civilisation on earth emerged. Where people first cultivated wheat and livestock, helping our ancient ancestors realise they could grow food and produce organic textiles 13,000 years ago. Looking back at the abundant lands of Mesopotamia while following in the footsteps of our ancestors, we have started a journey that is rooted in quality, sustainability, and culture.
As Urth Yarns, they have dedicated themselves to producing exquisite quality, hand dyed natural yarns. Knitting and crochet, hand crafts able to stand the test of time, have always been part of culture and media for artistic aspiration.
In nature nothing is perfect, yet everything is. As they are inspired by this harmonious individuality, they work every day to advance the dyeing techniques they use, always taking them one step further. They draw upon the abundance of ingredients our Earth offers, turning them into surprising colours and imperfect beauty. Their Harvest line is hand-dyed with fruits, nuts, and roots, yielding a timeless palette of earthy shades and resulting in a series of products that are genuine yet coherent. The process itself is fulfilling and rewarding, but nothing exceeds the feeling of seeing a beautiful, unexpected colour showing up.
All their collections are crafted meticulously by the hands of talented women in their Mersin and Istanbul studios. They also strive to create means to employ as many as they can through their sample-making program. In a world of machinery and mass production, the passionate and most importantly human touch of these women maintains the authenticity, sincerity, and responsibility that Urth as a brand stands for.
In their mission to sustain and give back, they have partnered with Trees for the Future, helping them keep the planet clean and green by making sure their business is a means to that goal. Thanks to this vital collaboration, the sale of each skein of Urth Yarns plants a tree.
The feeling of comfort, warmth, and safety brought by a strand of wool, a soothing meditation through the calm practice of hand crafts, motivates them day after day while driving them to work tirelessly to create designs that reflect the beauty of our planet.
Mother Nature smiles at us in all her bright colours, and we collectively celebrate her with our community of talented artisans.
