Meryem has been weaving for about 23 years. With the century-old looms she set up in her house, she weaves all the textile products that everyone needs at home using the weaving technique taught to her from her mother and her grandmother. The livelihood of the Black Sea people is agriculture. Meryem's husband earns money by working in the fields. Meryem has 5 children. By making LushLucky weaves, Meryem contributes economically to her family and thus acts as a role model for her children as a strong mother who can stand on her own two feet. She says; "I'm not asking "can I go?" to my husband now, I just leave."

      The Black Sea region is the capital of pure linen that is weaved by using natural ropes in handmade looms that date back to ancient times.

      It is mentioned in Evliya Celebi's 17th-century travel documents that the boats and gulets are produced in this region. The boats and gulet sail cloths made for the Ottoman navy were also weaved on the handmade looms of the Blacksea.

      Lush Lucky brings the traces of history back to your home by reopening the old trunks where centuries of stories and secrets have been locked up.
