There has been a pause in our blogging on the Women’s Cooperative but we are happy to report that the women in Mardin are doing well: They are currently preparing work for the big sale in Istanbul coming up in the next month that we wrote about earlier. We are happy with the progress this project has made over the course of the last year, thrilled to have met the women’s cooperative and grateful for having been able to share this unique experience with you all. We believe that there is tremendous potential in combining traditional Turkish handcrafts with contemporary design approaches and we sincerely hope that our cooperation has helped the Mardin community a little on their way to becoming more successful in selling their craft work. We have learned a great deal from the experience.

The women in Mardin are now moving on on their own, therefore Umut and I have decided to tackle our next project: We are currently in the process of identifying another women’s group, this time in Turkey’s capital Istanbul where Umut lives and works.

We want to thank everyone for their support, encouragement, and interest in the project!  We plan to update everyone about any future projects we may tackle, probably in a new crafthaus group - so stay tuned. We also want to thank Brigitte publicly for her wisdom, guidance, and inspiration!  It's been an honor to have this project supported by crafthaus and to have the opportunity to share it with everyone. We'll be back with more news soon!

Excellent news! I will, as you know, be there next week, so I hope that it overlaps with my visit. You said that you wrote about it before, but I can't find the dates. When will it be?
