Vivid Colours – Turkish Handicraft

The founder and jewellery designer of Vivid Colours Design has worked with traditional Turkish artisans since 2007 to keep the tradition alive whilst injecting the designs with a more modern, contemporary look. As all pieces are handmade each one is just a little different and reflects the flair of the artisan who made it.

Turkish needlework and crocheting are ancient handicrafts that are said to date back to the 8th century BC. Like so many traditional handicrafts the skills will be lost if people do not recognise and embrace the intricate skills involved.
