Bodhita means spiritual enlightenment in Pali, which is considered to be a sacred language. Design elements derived from the Turkish and Western cultures’ interaction with the Indian philosopy, from which it gets its name and inspiration, are universal. It embodies the stories, tales and legends through It’s collections and glorifies with the mastery of local artisan. Every crafted piece embraces the past with the spirit of today – “zeitgeist”. 

Bodhita represents spiritual enlightenment and rebirth with the Phoenix, a symbol of ‘life’. This semantic integrity established between the distant and natural human with the supernatural phoenix, makes them parts of the same world.

It accompanies women who breaks geographical stereotypes, who knows what and who they are, who reborns while living, who decides their own transformation, who finds power to meet the needs of their soul yet in themselves on their journey to every unknown, unique and new day.


As a designer her role in creating and communicating is substantial to being sustainable and caring about ethical values

Bodhita found in 2018 by its creator Erge Başak Ünsal, who was born in the same city, Istanbul. Her involvement through art, nature and people led her to turn this interest into pieces that anyone can carry. Rituals, ceremonies, legends and myths dazes Başak. Every piece she storified, carries the cultures of the world. She reshapes the signs of intercultural symbolism. She conveys concepts of infinity and belonging through natural and supernatural figures.

Designer continues her search for the right resources in the production of her designs, which combines the elements received from nature with gold, silver, bronze, precious and semiprecious stones that exist in nature.


Every piece we carry on our bodies turns into shared tales of humanity

With attention to all ethical values, Bodhita processes recycled
precious – semiprecious metals with a sustainable production approach. Designs carrying universal values crafted in hand with local techniques.

Grandiose craft in execution is carried into tomorrow with the memoriesand feelings of each of us.


Determined by their weights and sizes; Bodhita uses recycled solid gold between 9ct - 24 ct , 925 ct recycled silver and recycled bronze.

Parts that complete the designs are coated with layers of micron gold varying thickness between 0,5 mm - 1 mm or coated in a thin layer of rhodium for extra strenght and luster. Determined by their designs and metals, oxidation is also another method to reach antiqued royal look.

After those processes, transparent lacquer application provides protection against external impacts and surface deformations.
