Geography is Your Destiny. Your destiny is your fatality.

Hello,

Actually, I can't just say it's my story because my life is my mom's life.

We have a saying. It is said to belong to an ancient thinker. “Geography is your destiny” Both geography became my destiny and my name. Çilem...
I don't know if you believe in destiny or fate, but my destiny was written before the birth of the mother when my name decided. Çilem...
I didn't fully understand the meaning of my name until I was a young girl. Why did they call me that? Çilem ...

Did they call me Çilem because I was going to live a painful life, I was born of a non-love relationship, a parent?
I learned the facts about my life around the time I started school to university education as a young girl. One day when I asked my mother why you gave my name “Çilem”, she suddenly cried. He cried and told me.

“I was six months pregnant with you.Your father would come home too late,He never cared about us. He was always uneasy at home. One day I found out your father was cheating on me with another woman.
Then your father left me alone in these difficult life conditions. Actually not only me.He also left you alone in my stomach. That day was for me, when the hard times, suffering days began. I could no longer cope with the challenges of life on my own. I left town and settled with your grandfather.

My grandfather is a person who engaged in agriculture in the village, even a self-supported person, we had trouble for him. I would help the family budget weaving rugs at home to help him. (Weaving rugs beforehand is the only source of livelihood in rural areas.)
I've had a hard time. I've suffered a lot until you've reached your age. After the hard, material, spiritual days of my most difficult period of pregnancy, when you were born, when They asked me what your name would be given, my first thought was “Çilem” Those days were really the hardest times for me in my life, but thankfully I raised you and brought you to that age.”
I have a worldly sweet mother who has devoted her life to me. She made rugs for 20 years to raise me. We made our lives from the rugs. Now She cannot make rugs anymore because cannot see enough with her eyes due the fatigue given year.

I have finished the university and now it's time to start life. I was going to go to another city where I was prepared for the exams and was appointed as a result of the exam, or I would stay with my mother who sacrificed her life for me and support her.

While studying at the university, I had the opportunity to go abroad thanks to both Erasmus and Work and Travel. During this trip, during my study and education period, the family I stayed with, earning their livelihoods by selling their products in Etsy. So I curiously got information about them and did research on Etsy.

When I saw that not only handmade, but vintage items could be sold then I have remembered the rugs my mother had woven many years ago, even from her own dowry. I knew there were a lot of mothers around my life like my mother. I have to be able to handle it both to support them and to offer a new life to my mother.

I've been doing research more than a year and collecting vintage rugs. In my collection, there are a lot of vintage Turkish rugs from both my grandparents and my mother's dowry. I have all kinds of Vintage Rugs from Anatolia in the size of small rugs, area rugs, large rugs and runner rugs.

In our village and in many other villages in Turkey, there are many vintage Turkish rugs which are over 30-50 years old. I have collecting them, cleaned them, cared for them and made a beautiful collection.

I want to sell these vintage, unique beauty rugs in my Etsy shop, first of all for my mother and then for all the mothers who have suffered ordeal, and to support their lives to a certain extent.

All of these vintage rugs are made by a woman by a mother. On each of the vintage rugs sold in my shop, you will see these women's, mothers' handprints, life stories and the time they spend to make money.Every order you give will be a step towards supporting these women. Women will make the world beautiful.

Yes, this is how I met the ETSY family. Now, I present to you the vintage rugs over 30-50 years old, which are carefully woven together with my life story which my anime has woven for years and which is the subject of my name.

Geography was my destiny. As of where I live, I am very close to the places where such old vintage rugs are woven and cared for. Therefore, I had no difficulty in providing and maintaining.

I believe that joining the ETSY family will be good for me and my mother. The problems will decrease with sharing and happiness will increase with sharing….
Wishing you a lifetime of happiness…
