defining leather since 1968

We are a family business that brings together exceptional craftsmanship and savoir-faire with innovation. Each of our products embodies our history and culture, our carefully preserved heritage and our constant strive to towards modernity.


Our organization was founded by Mr Ilyas Koç in 1968. It all started with a small store in the Grand Bazaar. Mr Koç had learned the furrier profession in Vienna, where he spent his youth years. After returning to Istanbul, he discovered the vibrant world and dynamic business scene of the Grand Bazaar. Sensing the business opportunity, he decided to stay bazaar and worked his way up and saved capital to be able to open his store. Once Koç Leather House was founded, he saw that the leather industry lacked innovation, so he started to experiment with different styles and colours of leather, which at that time was most unconventional and unusual to other garments on the market. The risk he took paid off, and his creations were appreciated.

High Quality & Craftsmanship

We value quality & craftsmanship above everything! They are the very core principles that have shaped our organization since its incorporation in 1968. We are proud to follow a sustainable long-term business approach that rejects mass production and embraces quality made to last.

Our Commitment

Our connection to our garments runs deep and goes beyond the point of sale. When one of our pieces meets its owner in our store, it makes us proud, and we acknowledge that the life of our garments starts when the owner starts using them. Therefore we always take care of our pieces, no matter how old or how worn down. We are connected a lifetime to them.
