FABRIC

These fabrics has been woven knot by knot in these lands. 

 

Grandmothers, grandfathers of everyone had wove. They turned the masts to loom, then wove.  There is a trace of Anatolia on all of the shapes I wove today. Full of that much colorful, that much generous, that much grasp of flower, soil, nature, that much benevolent; it was...

 

Unsettled, besides. They were migrating like the birds of passage. They were moving to where the spring was… The nature was, its wealth… I am waving today’s shapes of those days’ tales…

 

Each of the shapes to be tale, once again… Like the running through the buildings, concretes of the reluctant nature; the humans’ shapes which life will find place…
