THE SAMMIMIS STORY

"An idea that grew into love."

"At its core was this idea we could create a business that designs & sells products to customers who love quality. Practical products that make life easy, every day. Products that stand out from the crowd and can be loved around the globe. 

And - at the same time create a space for likeminded people who can work from anywhere they happen to be. People who love to grow, succeed, and live in different places. Humans who are open and worldly. People who have a sense of humour and come together over coffee (tea or wine) to talk about ideas and solutions instead of other people, things and problems.

This idea became reality in 2014.”

Dana, Founder


Since then we’ve contemplated and enhanced our range based on your lives and desires. And now, we’re proud to say we carry the widest range of Turkish towels and hooded towels in Australia.

Our products are designed to give you quality, freedom & ease in life. From beach towels, hooded towels & beach bags to foreign lands, inspired by you.

We’re a close-knit, small team who share the same values and a passion for what the SAMMIMIS brand stands for. When you connect with us, you’re greeted with warm virtual smiles as you’re welcomed into the family.

“At SAMMIMIS we’re all about a simple, quality lifestyle with no compromise on style while looking after our planet.”


OUR NAME - “SAM-IM-IS”

SAMMIMIS (SAM-IM-IS) was derived from the Turkish word SAMIMI which means Sincere, Friendly, Familiar, Truthful, Open-hearted & Free.


SAMMIMIS  - ONE OF A KIND

Traditionally loomed, our products are made in rural Turkey by families who have been crafting this way for generations. Ethically made at every touchpoint.


The towels are cut and sewn by hand to preserve strength in the material, making them truly one of a kind.  Next, the products are coloured using the purest vegetable dye.

Each piece is finished with a hand twirled or knotted tassel then checked over as a SAMMIMIS label is sewn on one by one. Finally, it’s folded by hand and carefully delivered to quality seekers the world over.

All SAMMIMIS products are certified by Oeko-Tex, which means that the product has been tested for harmful toxins or chemicals. Our pieces do their bit for the world, and your way of life.

“Quality in everything we do”
