Handcrafts

Handicrafts are the liveliest and most significant cultural identity of a country. Extant motifs, colours and figures which belonged to previous centuries are also used on the objects produced today in accordance with the original. These objects which had different functions in daily life in the past, are now being used for decorative purposes.

Wood engraving, hand-made furniture and boxes, “Sesta” (straw tray-wicker tray) and knitting works, traditional hand-woven fabrics, silkworm cocoon crafts, traditional costume and embroideries are produced by using traditional techniques.

Various handicraft workshops and institutions, where traditional production techniques used are aimed not only to produce, display and sell handicrafts, but also to give courses in this field to revive this part of the country’s culture.
