Welcome to Happy-Nes, where we believe in creating happiness from the simple things in life. Our story began in 2014 when Nesligul and Ilan Karaso, a Turkish couple with a deep passion for creativity, embarked on a life-changing kite surfing trip to the enchanting Philippines and Zanzibar. Little did they know that this adventure would lay the foundation for a remarkable business venture.
Surrounded by breathtaking sunsets and the exhilarating rush of the wind, Nesligul and Ilan found themselves captivated by the simple and laid-back lifestyle embraced by the people they met on their journey. Inspired by the vibrant cultures, diverse traditions, tantalizing food, turquoise-colored seas, and the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the caravan culture, they were filled with a sense of wonder and awe.
It was during these transformative experiences that the seeds of Happy-Nes were sown. Drawing inspiration from their extensive travels to tropical islands in Africa and Asia for kite surfing, Nesligul and Ilan decided to blend these cultural influences with everyday products to create something truly extraordinary. They sought to infuse joy, color, and style into the most basic items of our everyday lives.
Happy-Nes emerged as a handcrafted accessory design brand with a clear mission—to create colorful lifestyles. Our goal is to elevate the value of commonly used products by transforming them into fashionable accessories that reflect the vibrant motifs and hues inspired by the cultures and islands we have explored. Each design tells a story, capturing the essence of the world's beauty and diversity.
At Happy-Nes, we pride ourselves on our commitment to craftsmanship. Every product in our collection is 100% handcrafted, ensuring meticulous attention to detail and a touch of individuality.
