CARPET PROJECT

Carpet project we aimed to create a new economic sector as well as creating a way for people to connect with their traditions.

Sheep is an important part of the kemalpasha cuisine. But as you can guess people used not only their meat but their milk and wool too. People used to use the wools for knitting jumpers and all kinds of things to wear. But after modernization the knitting tradition in Kemalpaşa ceased to exist. The new and syntetic clothes were more resistant to humid air. Also, they were cheaper and less labor intensive. So most of the wools were burnt.

In this Project we aimed to create a new economic sector as well as creating a way for people to connect with their traditions. We first collaberated with local autorities to understand how much wool is produced. Then we created a network for collecting all of the unwanted wools. We then hired professional carpet knitters to teach people how to knit carpet. We especially educated housewifes fort his purpuse. We also designed new carpet motifs inspired from the old carpets.

We also collaborated with other people to sell the products. We are now trying to create a self sustaining economic sector.
