Description:

This medium size handmade yellow Mary Poppins bag is a part of the painting tradition called Hamamiye. It is first hand-printed with hand-carved wooden blocks, then painted with goose feather paintbrushes by the artist herself then turned into a bag by the artist herself. Each bag is brimming with the cultural elements of Anatolia and is a product of Şermet’s creative mind and her excellence at craftswomanship. It takes 2 full days to finish each bag and since they are 100% handmade from scratch, they all are one of a kind.

Outer shell: 100 % Cotton painted fabric
Inner: Green cotton lining with one zipped and one open pockets

Weight 300 gm
Dimensions 52 × 60 cm
Care Instructions:

Handwash only.

Story:

Şermet revives the disappearing Anatolian arts and crafts traditions and creates her own textile language.
Hamamiye is a 600-year-old ancient fabric print tradition. Originally, they represented the floral gardens of Anatolian women in the past as the women painted their own gardens on these fabrics. Today, unfortunately, there are only few masters left in the Anatolian geographies who adamantly sustain this beautiful tradition.
Şermet, the only contemporary artist using this technique, takes the traditional pattern of Hamamiye and combines it with miniature painting’s motif as an emblem of her respect for Anatolian arts and crafts.

London-based art and design company PATA Art & Design collaborates with the contemporary artist Yıldız Şermet for Handmade Chelsea Online and introduces her handmade textiles and art to the UK. Şermet revives the disappearing Anatolian arts and crafts traditions, and creates her own textile language. The artist combines several Anatolian crafts; Ottoman Iznik tiles figures can be seen on her Turkish towel sets and kimonos while a 600-year-old ancient fabric print tradition is reinterpreted in contemporary scarves with the artist’s signature cypress trees and cloud motifs inspired by miniature paintings. This also includes a traditional fabric printing where luxury cotton and wool fabrics are hand-printed with linden tree woodblocks, then to be hand-painted with goose feather paintbrushes.
Yıldız Şermet is a contemporary artist based in Istanbul, Turkey. Following a degree in Arts, she worked as a decorator, illustrator and an art director. Her passion for the miniature art inspired her to discover Eastern traditions which had quite a different approach than the Western style education that she had received. Using different materials like wires, textiles and ceramics, she combines traditional miniature art subjects with unlikely elements and uses Anatolian and miniature motifs in more contemporary compositions. Her works are now exhibited in various museums, art galleries and institutions including the United States Embassy in Istanbul.
PATA Art & Design is an art and design company where you can find a collection of traditional works of art that draws on a contemporary approach by Turkish artists, illustrators and designers. Duygu Pata is the force behind Pata Art & Design, who established her own company in London to promote local artists, illustrators and designers in the global art scene and make her native Turkish culture come alive in the homes and hearts of others who may never have visited the country. She studied Art History and Theory at the University of Edinburgh and had first-hand work experience in many art institutions including Peggy Guggenheim Museum, Venice.
