Hello! My name is Gunce; the founder, designer, dispatcher, social media account manager, photographer… and customer representative of Chapters :) I have to admit, my husband Semih also played a big role in establishing the business. Come to think of it, Chapters might not have existed had I not gotten married…
I was working for a large corporation and kept dreaming of owning my own business. I guess most of us have had a similar dream at some point in our lives. At the time I was preparing for my wedding and needed a place to gather all my thoughts, dreams and inspirations but was unable to find an attractive wedding planner on the market in Turkey.
That was the a-ha! moment for me where I decided to design a wedding planner, the first seeds of a fledgeling business that I would later grow into a brand that strives to simplify peoples lives, bring them happiness and offer chic designs that make them - and their loved ones - feel better. That was the moment when the universe began sending me signals...
Just as I was trying to figure out the where’s, what’s and how’s of it all, I crossed paths with the owner of a major printing house on a flight to Istanbul. All I had was a business card in my hand and a big smile on my face, but I knew then and there that it was the first steps of my journey creating Chapters.
Today Chapters has grown into a brand which is being sold in several high end boutiques in Turkey, has a store located in Izmir, a great online presence, a wonderful team of people who take care of each and every order with a personal touch, and I'm grateful that I have a job I'm in love with.
At Chapters, our goal is to design high-end quality products that people of all ages will use with love while simplifying their lives and bringing them a touch of inspiration.
