Mehmet Ertas and Leon Brudo came together in 1958 and made a decision: They wanted to produce the nicest hats which would be admired and worn by everyone.
In the 1950's, hats were traditional accessories which men and women wore in everyday life.
Between 1958 and 1970, the hats produced by them became very popular so that the small manufacture named ''Anadolu Kasket Atolyesi'' became a well known company that produced the best hats in the sector.
In the 1970's, the company received an inquiry from the film sector of the country. The film company wanted to have costumes produced for a movie. Mehmet Ertas and Leon Brudo worked day and night in order to produce the costumes in time. The produced costumes became very popular so that other film companies also started to have their clothes produced at ''Anadolu Kasket Atolyesi'' Until the 1990's, the company produced these clothes and became a well-known and respected company in the textile sector. In 1995, companies from different sectors started to order textiles at the company. In the same year, the company name was changed to A.K.A. , using the initials of ''Anadolu Kasket Atolyesi''.
In 2006, the son of the company owner decided to change the name of the company to ''Cemertas Tekstil''and focused on the export of textiles. Meanwhile, the company exports its clothes to many European countries and countries worldwide.
