Fırat Neziroglu, the brand ambassador of the Kingdom of Thailand, brought Anatolian and Thai Culture together.
Our grandmothers knew nature, they acted together with nature.
The salt content of the Şile river and the fineness of the sand on the Şile coast had guided our elders. In order to weave fine fabrics, they filled cauldrons with sea water on the shores of Şile and boiled it.
They had prepared soup by pouring a bowl of flour into boiling sea water. They had thrown threads into this soup and covered it with flour. They stretched the threads strengthened with flour on the looms and weaved their very fine fabrics.
They washed the woven fabrics in the sea, again on the shore of Şile, and laid them on the very fine sands of Şile. Very fine sands penetrated into Şile cloths and dried the fabric. however, the fabrics that passed through these roads, blended with flour, met the sea and washed, became Şile Cloth.
You know how attached I am to culture, tradition and Anatolia. I feel that we are connected to each other as well. I am being so happy.
All this thanks to you, our dear mayor İlhan Ocaklı. Your vision, your beautiful heart gives me the strength to produce.
Our collection is also ready. We set up 200 looms, I give weaving training. Our women from Şile are weaving and sewing.
Support women's employment in Şile. We produce the most beautiful ones just like our grandmothers. I also design with respect to Anatolia.
