ABOUT US

İznik Mavi Çini was founded in 2002 by Mahmut Çalışkan, Serap Ereyli and İsmail Kaya to produce traditional Iznik tiles, of which production ended in the 18th century and began only in the 21st century, using modern technology. 
İznik tile is known in the world’s ceramic literature as the ceramic that is impossible to produce. The challenge lies in quartz -the raw material- that is present in all layers as well as the fact that an excessive amount goes to waste during shaping and firing stages. With its constant R&D efforts and design prowess, Iznik Mavi Çini works to prevent these exquisite works of art from going into oblivion, seeks to introduce them to new generations so that they can be used by future generations as well. In 2011, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism named company shareholders Mahmut Çalışkan, Serap Ereyli and İsmail Kaya as the Bearers of Intangible Cultural Heritage due to their successful and original works.
