Aponia is brainchild of designer Fatih Dağlı and co-founder Orçun Çetinkaya. It began life in 2009 and has expanded to comprise of two stores located in the heart of Istanbul (one of which doubles as coffee shop, Supermind).

Aponia caught the public eye in 2012 with the release of the Istanbul - From Aponia - With Love collection, which was warmly received by visitors and locals alike. The company’s bestseller sees the city’s most recognisable features tangled up inside a complex cat’s cradle, with the words “Istanbul. They call it chaos, we call it home” scrawled beneath it, and has become an iconic Istanbul image. 

Building on the success of this collection, Aponia continues to create new graphics, satisfying their appetite for surprising, and amusing people.
