It’s no news that Fashion is more than just clothing; it’s a way of saying something about yourself to others and projecting your personality. Recent research reveals that your clothing also speaks to you, not just about you. In her work ‘You are what you wear: what your clothes reveal about you’. Dr Jennifer Baumgartner says ‘You should dress not how you feel, but how you want to feel… the clothes you choose are sending a message to those around you, and also to you yourself’.
But this isn’t new. The women of Anatolia have followed this philosophy through their handicraft for generations, and their unique pieces of embroidery and lacing convey individual stories and emotions. We are proud to be supporting this age-old tradition in sourcing these products, and helping a new audience of women express themselves. Please do come and join us on this exciting journey. We are Cheyiz; we hope you will be too.
