Koton has evolved from a small Istanbul store into an international brand. Yılmaz, a naval officer, and his wife Gülden, a teacher opened a shop in Kuzguncuk, on the Asian side of Istanbul in 1988. The shop was mere 25 metres square space and the collection consisted of pieces from different brands made in Turkey. The production of Koton-branded items started in 1995. Today, the Koton brand has 220,000 square metres of shop floor area in 310 stores found in 24 countries across the world.
