rumisu is a joint project of two sisters, Pinar and Deniz…their passion for illustration led them to adopt first the good old classic silk scarf and now also the cotton and wool scarf , as their version of a blank canvas… each scarf created has its own story; characters & inspiration and color mood…
Pinar and Deniz create their own prints by hand-illustrating, to welcome everyone into their whimsical world They try to keep away from taking life too seriously and keep a sense of humor when they design and hopefully share along the whimsy
“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” Rumi
