Honoring old world crafts techniques in Turquoise's Artisans as introduce them to other cultures around the world.

After completion of my engineering career, I decided to curate Sibel Artsy Knits (aka Turquoise Artisans) the lost artisans of Turkey. The word “turquoise” is a French term meaning “Turkish” because the turquoise stone was first bought to Europe through Turkey, from mines in the historical Khorasan Province of Persia. I learned from my mother, grandmothers, and father in Turkey, to create for ourselves rather than to purchase in a store. The old world sophistication and designs stayed with me in memories such as listening to family stories at night cuddled in a family-made blanket or shopping with grandma/grandpa to pick out fibers, fabrics, and materials for something she/he will teach me to make. My primary goal is to honor old-world crafts techniques as introduce them to other cultures around the world with my designs.

Here at Sibel Artsy Knits (aka Turquoise Artisans) I design and create handmade items such as drawstring project bags, cotton market/beach/project bags, pouches, knitted handbags, purses. I also carry woven pestemals/towels, yarns,and accessories. All the products are created by hand with love and passion for making you feel special and unique. I can also custom some of the gift items. HOW? Visit my shop to choose your favorite item and email me how would you like to customize your piece.

This is what I wish to share with my customers as I bring my products to life. Behind every handcrafted creation of Sibel Artsy Knits will be a story... and, it will begin with you. Let me help to foster my dreams carrying the ancient crafts for future generations to enjoy.

Sincerely,
Kybele

    I am an engineer and hunger for fibers themselves. My desire to bring my childhood memories to today’s fast pace life. Working with silks, wools, cotton, and silver is what keeps my passion for traditional craft.
