Cozy Koza was created by an American husband and a Turkish wife, Mike and Eylul. After permanently relocating to the United States from Turkey, the couple recognized an abundance of low-quality, fast-fashion towels. They noticed fabric discoloration, rips and tears after just a few months, and were tired of wasting money.
The couple wasn’t the only one. Eylul would travel home to Turkey for brief visits and found herself returning to the United States with suitcases filled with repeated requests for towels from their friends, family, and colleagues who ask for “real” Turkish towels made by the masters of this art.
These experiences help Eylul and Mike recover perceptions of Turkish towels that people they know.
It also made them realize that many people are searching for unique and quality towels without having to know much about where to find them and without having to pay premium prices.
The couple started questioning “Why should it be so difficult to access towels that are good for your body, good for the environment, and good for the soul?” and The Cozy Koza was born.
Cozy Koza is a combination of the English word 'cozy' and the Turkish word 'koza'. While 'cozy' means 'warm', 'comfortable', and 'enjoyable', 'koza' is used in Turkish to mean “Cocoon”.
Cozy Koza was born from this idea of creating cozy and cocoon-like towels for people who are looking for natural, stylish and quality products.
The couple envision making these fine towels accessible to all who desire to experience high quality Turkish towels and at the same time support the under-appreciated craftspeople in Turkey who create these wonderful items.
