Isko, specialist denim manufacturer, will open its second Creative Room, an inspiration and creativity hub similar to the one already opened in Castelfranco Veneto in 2011 and managed by CEO Umberto Brocchetto and creative director Massimo Munari. The new hub will open in Istanbul's historic centre, in the prestigious Nisantasi area, at the beginning of March 2014. Expert creative industry insider Emre Selcuk will manage the creative hub.

“After opening our Creative Room in the Veneto region aimed at supporting Northern Italian jeans brands and Iskoteca in San Benedetto del Tronto supporting Central Italy laundries and local brands, this new born Creative Room is meant to offer support to specialised garment manufacturers that mostly operate for Northern European and US brands,” commented Marco Lucietti, marketing manager, Sanko group. “Isko closed the year 2013 with a double digit increase in sales and this was not simply thanks to markets that have remained stable for us such as, Germany, Italy and the UK, though we have also increased our presence in other countries such as Columbia, Brazil, Russia and The US. The opening of this new Istanbul hub is aimed to strengthen our activities in these important new markets with high-potential growth.”
