Turkish Goods Section

After enjoying your food, we also would like to invite you to our souvenir stand which you can find many things from ceramics to rugs. Just next to it, our traditional handmade silver ornaments stand again has various items for you to try on and buy. We explain below; two different methods of manufacturing hand-made silver ornaments in Turkey.

Kazaziye

Kazaziye, (also known as 'Kazazlık' or 'Kazaz'), is a Handmade jewellery technique. Kazaziye is a historical technique from the Caucasus. Kazaziye is a local art from the northern Turkish city Trabzon. Kazaziye made by hand with only 1,000 carat silver or 24 carat gold. The exact history of Kazaz is not well-known, however, it is said that this art was born in Mesopotamia area by Lydians in 2,800 BC and later spread north to Anatolia.

Telkari

Telkari [Filigree] is a delicate kind of jewellery metalwork, usually of silver, made with tiny beads or twisted threads, or both in combination, soldered together or to the surface of an object of the same metal and arranged in artistic motifs. Archaeological finds in ancient Mesopotamia indicate that filigree was incorporated into jewelry since 3,000 BC. Specific to the city of Midyat in Mardin Province of Turkey in upper Mesopotamia, a form of filigree using silver and gold wires, known as 'telkari', was developed in the 15th Century. To this day, expert craftsmen in this region continue to produce fine pieces of telkari.
