Anim is a transcontinental lifestyle brand specializing in home textiles founded in 2019 by Mina Dilber Temo. After spending half a decade in Los Angeles where she attended the University of Southern California, Mina returned to Istanbul and launched Anim to combine her family’s extensive textile heritage with the West Coast culture she had come to love.
Anim is rooted in quality and cultural responsibility. All goods are produced ethically and sustainably using methods of traditional craftsmanship. As the Latin root of Anim suggests, each unique piece is fabricated both to celebrate and inspire a life well-lived, as well as a cultural take on a relaxed yet refined lifestyle.
The essence of Anim’s approach is deeply rooted in the nomadic spirit of traditional Turkish culture. While also staying true to its domestic origins, Anim infuses its wares with design elements borrowed from a wide array of cultural influences both near and far. Anim maintains a modern global perspective which nonetheless honors the methods of its roots.
Anim’s commitment is to create collections that are designed and crafted for everyday life which each have a distinct story to tell—where the materials come from, which artisans are making them, how the goods are produced, and why. Each and every piece is produced by expert craftsmen using the finest materials and the finest of finishes and is inspired by Mina’s childhood spent fascinated with exotic fabrics, arts, culture and travels to exotic locales both within Turkey and beyond. With Anim, she has created a brand which embraces the culture of her two homes, Istanbul and Los Angeles, and everywhere in between.
