About Us

 

Created in London, with love from Istanbul, Hamamingo was born in 2018 and derives from a Turkish & British heritage, coupled with a combined love of being different.

Hamamingo Founders, Antonia and Firat, met in London and fused their British and Turkish cultures together, along with their love affair of travel - and each other - to create Hamamingo. The Smart Cotton Brand for Lifestyle and Travel.

Eco-Friendly Production Line

Sustainability - for Hamamingo - is about giving something back to the communities in which their products are famously produced.

Hamamingo are very proud to work with family-run, master weavers who for generations have used traditional weaving methods to produce ethically made and conscious textiles. All Hamamingo tassels are hand-tied by the very clever women who form a major part of these communities in the heart of Denizli, Turkey.

Natural Aesthetics
 

Hamamingo have reduced the amount of plastic they use and package all of their products in 100% cotton canvas Tote and Travel Bags, which can be used time and time again.

The brand are also very proud to hold an Oeko-Tex certification, which is a worldwide stamp of recognition for their natural dyes and yarns.

Our Promise

Antonia and Firat's passions for eco-luxury products, coupled with their love of travel and laid-back lifestyle, creates a versatile product which will last a lifetime.

They give the traditional Hammam Towel a modern twist with their love of colour and being a little bit different. Their promise is simple -

 

"If we can produce a garment - an accessory - which has been used over time, to give our customer longevity and versatility, rather than one-time use then this to us is working towards a more sustainable eco-system".

Our Impact

As a company Hamamingo champions less - or ideally zero - waste. Antonia and Firat work hard with their producers to diversify their product range to make use of any unwanted samples and fabric off-cuts.

As a business their ethos is to make a bigger impact in working towards a more sustainable planet and they feel that it is part of their responsibility to do so - from the very core of their products’ beginning, to the end user, which in turn creates a ripple effect.

Hamamingo products are not only sustainably produced, but they support sustainability and to Antonia and Firat this is incredibly rewarding and something which the brand is very proud of.
