Nowadays, many Turkish women make needle lace themselves. They know many different lace techniques. Turkish lace work created all over Anatolia since 17th century. This work reflects Anatolian women's patience, creativity and devotion


Young people enjoy wearing bracelets, necklaces, earrings and belts. Older people may, out of tradition, put away oya laced bed linen, towels and prayer head scarves in a classical bridal trousseau for their daughters.


This beautiful necklace's color are purple, lilac and yellow. Flowers are made of high quality yarn, each flower made by using a sewing needle and then connected to each other with a crocheted cord. The crochet cord connecting the flowers is green.

This item is a unique OOAK (One of a Kind) piece.

A Thousand Splendid Sun

7.04.2010 - Posted by Zuzu at 6:18 PM

I just finished reading "A Thousand Splendid Suns". A Thousand Splendid Suns is beautiful. I read a huge number of books but this is a wonderful wonderful! It was an amazing book, and I do not remember the last time a book has touched me like this one did. I had tears in my eyes while reading the last chapters, and I must say, I've never cried while reading a book before. It gave me a new understanding of events that were happening in Afhganistan. Khaled Hosseinı is a great writer. You must read it!

Turkish

Bir muhteşem kitap; Bin Muhteşem Güneş. Sizi bir anda kendi içine çeken, yüreğinize dokunmayı başaran ve ağlatan bir kitaptan bahsediyorum. Henüz okumadıysanız şiddetle okumanızı tavsiye ediyorum.

"Bin Muhteşem Güneş, ilk romanı Uçurtma Avcısı'yla tüm dünyada inanılmaz bir başarı yakalayan Hosseini'nin ikinci romanı. Yazar bu romanında da yine doğduğu toprakları anlatıyor. Bu kez iki kadının kesişen yaşamları ve dostlukları üzerinden…

Küçük yaşta evlendirilen kızlar, çocuğu olmayan kadınlar, babaya ya da çocukluk arkadaşına duyulan, geçmişe gömülmüş aşklar…

Khaled Hosseini, hasreti, dostluğu, aşkı ve insanlığı en iyi anlatan yazarlardan. Başarıyla kurduğu olay örgüsüyle, çıkmaz yolların nasıl düzlüklere açılabileceğini gösteren yaratıcı bir kalem.

Bin Muhteşem Güneş, kelimenin tam anlamıyla “beklenen” bir roman
