The name “Efes” is derived from the ancient city of Ephesus, near modern-day Selcuk in the coastal region of Izmir. In its day, Ephesus was famous for the nearby Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was also home to Lady of Ephesus, whose figure is the inspiration behind our logo.
