Our Story

Definition Studio is an Istanbul- Washington DC based Mediterranean Lifestyle concept that produces collections that combine style and function while focusing on sustainable materials. Self- proclaimed Mompreneur, Hatice Can Saglik founded the company while she was a student at the University of Maryland in 2006. As a jewelry designer, she loves creating fun pieces that will bring joy to those who wear them but also remind them of their connection and responsibility to our mother nature. Definition Studio jewelry pieces have been highlighted in Architectural Digest Magazine as well as many other local media outlets.
During the Pandemic, Definition Studio collections have expanded into vintage leather goods and sustainable linen/cotton Apparel and Home Goods, mainly sourced from Hatice's hometown Istanbul for a seamless one stop shop experience. She is very excited to have a second home in Union Market District where she hopes to create a community space for other local creatives to pop up seasonally, and gather for events and workshops. 

Sustainability has become a way of life for many of us conscious consumers.  Growing number of people understand that each purchase they make has health, environmental, and social impacts. 

Our goal is to educate our consumers about the benefits of sustainable materials, chemical free dyes, and zero waste production. We make products from natural materials and textiles, learn more about natural dyes and earth pigments. We believe necessary awareness and gained knowledge about the best practices will ultimately influence purchases and as a result creating a lifestyle towards more quality and less "stuff". Especially considering the current events we have been experiencing we believe we all have to do our part to speed up the necessary shift towards more sustainable living with focus on the environment and people.
