The foundations of Bitti Gitti were laid in 2012, in an apartment in Istanbul. Erbil was working as the youngest employee in the history of Turkey’s biggest technology company Turkcell, as an industrial engineer in the data analytics marketing department.
After work, he would screen print his designs on t-shirts and posters, gifting them to colleagues the next day. These handmade gifts were loved, and people began asking to learn how to make them.
With the CEO’s permission, he began giving workshops to charities and non profit organizations. After a workshop with a children’s cancer charity led to the products being sold via auction on one of the countries most popular TV shows, demand for workshops increased.
After leaving his full-time job and attending a design program in London, Erbil returned to Istanbul and officially started the company in 2013. Bitti Gitti means “Done and Gone”, it’s the act of making something and gifting / selling it quickly so you can share your handcrafts with the world.
Initial workshop themes were calligraphy, screen printing, and pinhole photography.
Bitti Gitti enable teams to make long lasting, handcrafted design objects for the workplace. In an age where almost everything we use is mass produced, handcrafted objects have great value, which companies can use in many ways.
From startups to the Fortune 500, Bitti Gitti’s products are used for team building events, key account management, influencer marketing and to boost the employer brand.
In addition to providing resources for special events, Bitti Gitti developed solutions that make it possible for any employee to learn handcrafting skills in the office and at home, and use them for their projects throughout the year.
