Obakki is a Canadian homewares brand known for representing a roster of global artisans.
IDS Vancouver is pleased to have Obakki participating in TWO sections this year:
First as the Feature Entrance installation toward the launch of the IDS x Obakki Design Incubator, an initiative designed to mentor and support young Canadian talent, this year featuring Montreal-based brand Cyrc.

Obakki will also be participating in this year's District Design Market, showcasing their Turkish Linen Collection available for purchase: In Support of Earthquake Relief (in Booth D16).
" On Feb. 6, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake occurred in southern Turkey. Obakki's textile partners live and work in the hardest hit region, and months after the earthquake, work continues to rebuild the area.
100% of our net profits from this collection are going back to our artisan partners in Turkey so they can begin to rebuild their economy.
We believe that being a supportive business partner is more than just a transaction, it’s a direct connection to humans and a long-term commitment to the communities they live in. "
