The Secret Moon.

Between night and day and the reflections of light that illuminate our world, lies another place: a very special land of fruit forests, calm warm seas and tropical beaches, lush green parks and soft rolling hills. The creatures that live in this magical place call it - the Secret Moon – because it is!

This magic land is where your nice thoughts, dreams and ideas come from. It is a beautiful green moon where everyone remains young and no one is ever sick or sad. The people who live there are just like you and me – just like the nice voice in your head that encourages you to think about your best friends and family, what they need and how you can help them. The nice you that makes people laugh and want to hug you.

The Secret Moon.

Between night and day and the reflections of light that illuminate our world, lies another place: a very special land of fruit forests, calm warm seas and tropical beaches, lush green parks and soft rolling hills. The creatures that live in this magical place call it - the Secret Moon – because it is!

This magic land is where your nice thoughts, dreams and ideas come from. It is a beautiful green moon where everyone remains young and no one is ever sick or sad. The people who live there are just like you and me – just like the nice voice in your head that encourages you to think about your best friends and family, what they need and how you can help them. The nice you that makes people laugh and want to hug you.

Many different types of creatures live there, with different coloured bodies of all different shapes and sizes. They live together in peace. Some creatures have animal bodies, some have human bodies, but in this special place, everyone is friends and no one ever hurts anyone else.

It is like a summer holiday every day. Playing on the beaches and swimming in the sea. No one cooks, because the creatures only eat fruit that they pick gently from the trees, and no one needs to drink anything, because the fruit is so lovely and juicy. There’s no tables to lay and no washing up, because when they finish their meal, they just plant the seeds in the soil. And no house work, because everyone sits on the soft green moss and they sleep outside (whenever they feel tired) under big umbrella trees in the warm sunshine (because it never gets dark). There is more than enough food for everyone.

No one owns anything on this magical moon, because everyone has what they need and share everything. There is only one country, so everyone is from the same place. There is no money, because everything is free, so no one has to work. All you have to do to live there, is be happy with what you have and share what you have with everyone.

If you are wondering what these people do all day, well that’s easy - they help the flowers grow, tend the trees and look after the birds and the bees. Sometimes the adults in our world speak of nature and how it looks after us, well, the people on the Secret Moon take care of nature.

Hello. My name is Ekin and I have a 7 month old son called Kaia. My partner is the artist, Kris Manvell. I love to make things, especially dolls and clothes for little ones and young ones...

I used mostly upcycled clothes, recycled materials and bits and bobs that I have collected over the years.

The three of us live in a little house on the Aegean coast of south western Turkey: a little fishing viallge called, Gumusluk (Myndos). We live a simple life, growing our own food when we can, walking in the olive grooves and enjoying the beach with our friends.

It takes me up to a week to make a doll - as everything is hand-made, although Iuse a sewing machine for some parts. My mom helps me sometimes, and my sister when she's not busy.

We dream of a nicer world for everyone... for all the children and animals.

Thank you for visiting my little shop.
If you have any questions, or want me to make something special for you - then please drop me a line.

Bye
Ekin:)
