Creating happiness from the simple things in life,
In 2014, a kite surfing trip to Philippines and Zanzibar turned into a life changing business venture for Nesligul and Ilan Karaso, a Turkish couple that loves to create... Between the stunning sunsets and blowing wind , it was not long before the lovely couple began to appreciate the simple and laidback lifestyle of the people they encountered.
While creating our designs and products, our main inspiration themes were the long trips that we did to tropical islands in Africa and Asia for kite surfing. We were amazed with the different and colorful cultures, habits of local people, their food cultures, turquois colored seas and warm, friendly environment of the caravan culture. We decided to combine these inspirations with the most basic products of our every day life. This is the story of how it all began…
Happy-Nes is a handcrafted accessory design brand that aims to create colorful lifestyles. We are adding value into most daily used products by turning them in to fashionable accessories. The inspiration behind the different motifs comes from the colors of different cultures and islands we have explored.
All of the Happy-Nes products in our collection are 100% Hand Made, that’s why each of the products even with the same pattern might have slight design differences, this is what makes your product unique for you.
For us creating a brand must not be based on only making profit. We decided to support people around us in need of help and protection. By owning one of Happy-Nes products, you will be making a donation through us to Tohum Autism Foundation for kids in Need of Social Education and will be helping Tohum kids to realize their colorful dreams.
