The Burnley company made the contribution towards disaster relief efforts after hearing the devastating news.
Staff raised the money by hosting four sample sales over two days, with all the profits going to Türk Kızılay - The Turkish Red Crescent, which is part of the International Red Cross. They also plan to send clothing to those who have lost their homes.
The business has teams on the ground in Istanbul, who are all safe.
Turkey is one of its key sourcing territories and some of its suppliers have been directly impacted by the incidents.
