The beautiful Akile bottle has adorable motifs of tulips in blue, red and green colors on a white backdrop, giving it both an artistic and inspiring look. The story of the tulip flower is world famous. When it first came to Europe, from Turkey, in the 16th century, it almost immediately became extremely popular. So much, that a single bulb exceeded the price of a house and triggered a genuine “tulip war”. In Turkey, you will find different kinds of tulip motifs, decorating many of the great historic buildings, palaces, and mosques, as well as you will find the tulip in various handiwork, art, textiles and ceramics. The tulip originates from Turkey and is today the country’s national flower.
The Akile bottle is handmade in Kütahya, an area of Turkey well known for their techniques, traditions and designs in ceramic art and craftmanship. Where the renowned Iznik workshops were closely connected to the royal court, the artisans in Kütahya mainly produced elegant and sophisticated household ceramics to the higher middle classes. Throughout the last centuries, Kütahya has developed into a major ceramic area, famous for their outstanding quality and breathtaking designs and handicraft. At Malukka, we have chosen to present handmade ceramics from Kütahya, carefully selected with a special focus on an inspiring and aesthetic design, a meticulous handiwork and good quality.

As the ceramics are handmade by small and self-employed artisans, the delivery time may vary, and in some cases, take longer than the estimated 23 working days – due to the nature of handicrafts or circumstances at the individual artisan’s workshop. In this case you will, of course, be contacted by us. For further information please read “about us” and Terms and Conditions.
