One of the most vibrant districts in Istanbul, Galata, has become today the center of cultural and artistic ventures in Istanbul. A landmark symbolizing a mix of cultures along with the firsts in history, San Pierre Han still stands; the first Ottoman Bank, mustard factory, architecture offices, blue jean workshop, among others. As the label “Kot” remains today in Turkish language, Mr. Kot established the first blue jean workshop within San Pierre Han. In the 1980’s, Mr. Kot was challenged by competitors and closed his workshop in 1992.
