AN IMPORTANT CULTURAL HERITAGE: EMBROIDERY
Throughout centuries, handicrafts, which are living proofs reflecting the culture and characteristics of a nation, integrated with society’s understanding, lifestyle, and sense of art and revealed depths of the human soul. Embroidery is just as other handcrafts emerged with a sense of garnishing daily used tools such as clothing and utensils. Embellishments that are produced using traditional methods are included in formal and informal education programs of MONE. Today, besides household goods, embroideries are used on many things such as evening gowns and sportswear, bag, belt, hat, shoes, slippers, scarves, etc. Besides being an enjoyable activity, it is also an income source. Handicrafts are drawing people’s attention because embroidery contributes to household income. People apply to Cameli Public Education Center to get training for it. Individuals completing their education may work at souvenir stores or make embroideries at home. Embroidery is an occupation that does not require a unique working environment; for this reason, it is possible to make it in any environment freely.
