Founded in 2015 by Nur, Nur Toktay clutches and hair accessories are fully handmade in New York. They feature quality fabric, leather and feathers imported from Turkey, and are each designed to be unique and beautiful.
Nur Toktay studied stage arts management in Istanbul Bilgi University, where she was inspired to pursue a future as a makeup artist. In 2007 she earned diplomas from Joe Blasco West Makeup School in Los Angeles for “Advanced Glamour Makeup” and “Prosthetic & Special Effects”. In the next several years, her career in professional makeup took a turn when she started making her own one-of-a-kind handcrafted head accessories and later transitioned to handbags.
