The Mysterious Language Of Turkish Oya Lace

Turkish lace work created all over Anatolia since 17th century. This work reflects Anatolian women's patience, creativity and devotion.

Woman’s delicacy, sensitivity, creativity, fertility, philosophy and oneness with nature are observed in the most beautiful examples of lace, an elegant and refined art that has its own mysterious language. Young maidens, new brides, and young women traditionally conveyed their loves—whether hopeful or hopeless, their expectations, their good tidings, their happiness and unhappiness, their resentment and their incompatibility with their husbands to those around them through the lace they wore.


Sewing needle lace is a variety that was produced by affluent, aristocratic, urban women. The most beautiful examples of such lace, which was usually made with a sewing needle using silk thread, were produced in the Ottoman Palace.

Hi! I know, I should spend more time for my blog (and my Etsy Shop!) I create many items but I couldn't take pictures of them and I am planning to write something about myself/my job/my life/İstanbul and maybe Etsy tips. I just need more time! (uuhh) As soon as possible I'll do something about my blog and Etsy Shop!

Merhabalar efendim. Blogculuk dünyasına adım atalı birkaç gün oldu ve ben büyük bir hevesle bir şeyler paylaşmak istesem de uygulamaya geçiremiyorum bu isteği. Fazlaca yoğun geçen günlerde zaman ayırabildiğim şeylerin sayısı sınırlı. Blog yazma işi henüz günlük yapılacaklar listesinde yerini alamadı. En kısa zamanda bu ortama girmek ve devam edebilmek istiyorum, bakalım :)
