Our Story

We are two designers who set out to offer you simple, useful and long-lasting products under the name of Onebear. Utkan and Elif ...

Our story started with the passion of designing objects in daily life using simple techniques with our hands, using materials that are accepted all over the world. We wanted to put aside fast and unnecessary consumption and emphasize our respect for time, manual labor and sustainability. The Onebear brand and its products are an expression of the long-term, sustainable and well-thought-out life we ​​want to establish. In this way, we produce leather bags, leather wallets, tobacco passport covers, phone cases and hundreds of personalized products in our workshop.

Our products are designed by both of us (Utkan & Elif Kızıltuğ) and produced by Hakan Balveren in our small workshop in Hasanpaşa. In our designs and production, we especially emphasize clean and simple lines, well thought-out details and of course usability.

If you are using a Onebear product, you are one step away from the overconsumption craze and one step closer to sustainability.
