Caretta Deri Mont Leather

I am not connected to this new business other than he is making me a jacket.

Caretta Deri (leather) is a new business set up by Abdulkadir Barak. Based in Ortaca, he used to work exclusively making tailored leather clothes for customers in the coastal hotels around Sarigerme; he is now branching out on his own. You show him any design and he will make it for you in a few days: any leather, any colour, any design. You specify the leather from his samples and pay a deposit, balance on completion.

He will have a stall on the 3Cs Christmas Fair day (7th December) on Çaliş front. He will have clothing (including my jacket, I hope), bags and other samples to see. He speaks some English, but will have a friend to help with translation on the day for detailed conversation and orders.

If you speak Turkish you can phone him: 0553 322 1235

Re: Caretta Deri Mont Leather

Don´t know about shoes because I didn´t ask, but I know one of the items he will be displaying will be leather slippers for children. Show him a picture of what you want. Certainly his leatherwork is impressive. He also has lots of design catalogues for you to pick from.

I note on his card he is also doing repairs and colouring of leather items.

PS No not a relative.

Re: Caretta Deri Mont Leather

Caretta Leather´s stall will be at the Deniz Hotel on Sunday.

He has also confirmed that he makes handmade (measured to your own feet) leather shoes for indoor use.

I don't suppose anybody has an email address for him do they, so I can send some photos?

Re: Caretta Deri Mont Leather

I got my jacket and it is exceptionally good. It was completed in less than one week in lambskin - the lambs did not die in vain! I showed him an example on the Orvis site, he suggested a few design improvements and I got it for 600TL.

His stall yesterday was a disappointment for me. Because he moves items through to customers so quickly, and he is a new business, he did not have enough of his own good work to show off and he had to borrow some rather ordinary items to fill it up. His handmade children´s slippers were really nice. I offered to leave my new jacket with him for the day, but he declined in case it was marked by people handling it. Anyway, he covered his costs for the day, so I wish him well, he is a real artist with leather.
