The Story of Lalay
Lalay was established in 2007 by Figen Subaşı Westerhof , Çiğdem Subaşı ,Nurçin Subaşı and Müge Konuralp as a social responsibility project under the aegis of Subaşı Group of Companies, with a view to conveying the timeless cultural heritage of Anatolia to the contemporary marketplace. Lalay which happens to be the embodiment of a joint dream in a unique brand has become an outstanding example of female entrepreneurship in Turkey.
The craftsmen, artisans, masters who never disassociated themselves from their ties of affection for the Anatolian Culture and the unique values which they still produce today with commitment has been the main source of inspiration for Lalay.
To carry on these historic values in a natural way into the present, it started with the black bench and the handloom woven loincloths, terry napkins. Later on it continued with soap, copper workmanship, cotton blankets, cotton bed linen, loincloth and terry bathrobes.
Lalay's aim is to introduce the natural and inspiring forms of the Anatolian culture firstly to its own people and then to the world. And of course to bring it to anyone who appreciates nature, practical usage and quality, too...
