I am the founder of Baboo, Hande Özdinç
I was born in İzmit. I graduated from Galatasaray University, Department of Business Administration. I have been brand management in the pharmaceutical industry for 11 years. I am Derin and Demir's mother.
In 2018, when I became a mother for the second time, I founded this brand inspired by Demir and my mother. Our grandmother was knitting beautiful vests, sweaters and blankets for us with wonderful colors and materials. My children were very lucky in this regard. I thought that other babies deserved these beautiful products too, and I decided to take a step.
After many years of corporate life, I set out to establish a brand by touching real lives and gaining strength from women. All of a sudden, dozens of women gathered around us and started knitting with love for Baboo. Baboo has also become a social movement, women have been empowered in their homes and it has given us strength as well.
We have grown a little over time, and we have become a brand with sales points in many parts of Turkey and abroad. We carried our production story to the workshop by using the knowledge we gained there at the point where handmade clothes were insufficient in terms of capacity. Our handmade arm continues to work with toys and accessories.
Thank you for growing our business, which has evolved with your love and interest.
