The Story

The First moment of Belonging.


Let's Get Dirty

'First Habitat' came as a personal need. It is a collection of memories and feelings. Colors, textures, and scents. All things that make me feel at peace. All things that are able to bring me back to the place I grew up; my grandmother’s garden. To the first moment of belonging.

Where I smelled the wet soil for the first time and smiled, with my eyes closed. To the barefoot walks. The blooming flowers in every possible color and shape. The ice-cold glasses of water. The sweet smell of summer bodies. The everlasting vigil light at the dedicated corner of hope. The reassuring rituals. The long hugs in which you forget who you are; and you can no longer get out. And the very carefully curated hiding spots, followed by the uncanny pocket-money transaction that always felt like a drug deal! Secrets and support. All in one, in a very twisted way. 

First Habitat is My-Home Collection. My starting point and my sanctuary. Where my playfulness found an even naughtier partner! Hope to find you somewhere along the way.
