Words can’t express my excitement and simultaneous heart-melt for Papilio boutique. Beautiful hardwood floors and fixtures, racks lined with the most luxurious of natural fibre clothing, shelves stacked with silk-spun hammam towels – it must be Kas, Turkey.
For the past 25 years storeowner and designer Sumru Gizer, has been the creative mind behind Papilio. Using natural fibres, Papilio employs local talent to spin the store’s desired fabrics and manufacture Gizer’s carefully imagined garments ready to wear. Think flowing shawls and capes, geometrically cut tops and ethereal skirts all perfectly fit for cocktails on the beach.
Kas’s streets are adorned with beautiful laid-back boutiques but you can find Papilio at Uzuncarsi 16A-17A Kas, Turkey.
