WHO WE ARE
company
Your Sleep is Our Business
At MEKAN we know how important sleep is for health and well being - so much so that we made it our business. Since 1974 our passion for providing people with a sound night's sleep has guided everything that we do, and has kept us going through times of adversity. We are proud to be MEKAN; a name that stands for trust, determination and quality.
HIGH QUALITY RAW MATERIALS What Goes In Is Just as Important as What Comes Out
It's common sense that if you use sub-par materials you will have a sub-par product, which is why we settle for nothing less than quality. The majority of our raw materials are sourced from within Turkey, while we find some of the more specialty items in Europe. All materials are rigorously tested for durability, safety and comfort before being included in MEKAN products, ensuring the continuation of our reputation for excellence.
PRODUCTION
We Are What We Produce.
All MEKAN products are lovingly craft-made in our factory in Izmit, by our team of skilled technicians. Many have been with us since we began, or have learnt the trade from a young age. This means we, and you, can rest in the knowledge that each and every piece will be finished to the highest standard. We’ve been producing in the same workshop for 34 years, after we relocated from Istanbul, which has given us plenty of time to come up with a system that works to perfection.

THE FAMILY EFFECT MEKAN has been in the hands of the same family from the very beginning and, with the new generation now taking the reins, it is still those hands which are leading the company into its future. Passion and a desire for innovation have always been at the heart of MEKAN, but these values are being given a new lease of life; they will become the backbone of a company where exciting product design meets sustainability and environmental awareness. The company has survived so long due to the dedication and enthusiasm of each individual family member, and the lasting love of providing a quality product and service.
