ABOUT SYMBOL 

 

A Matter of Protection in Africa

The Akan tribe, who live on the shores of Western Africa, have a system of symbols which they call Adinkra, one of which is called ‘Akoko Nan’. This symbolizes the proverb ‘A mother’s foot can step on her children but will never harm them’! This is an affectionate and protective symbol which advises raising children with love, but without spoiling them.

It is a Matter of… We don’t want to offend the elders in Africa, but in our land we have a saying ‘Roses flourish where a mother strikes us’. Another common saying is ‘Raw chicken would be eaten without question if it is your mother that requests it’. In short, we all need protection and affection from our mothers.

Gifting Reasons

With this symbol representing the most basic instincts of motherhood, this is a gift which you can give to your children as a way of always protecting them, or to your mother, or any other kind person who took you under their wing, as a way of saying thank you. When you think of a “Mother's Day gift, birth gift, children's gift, thank you gift, birthday gift” this is the first thing that comes to mind.

A PERSONAL MATTER
I believe that to be successful, you need to find a matter that you believe in. For the past 20 years I have seen Turkey export, its wealth to the rest of the world in the form of its quality raw materials, which have been more appreciated abroad than in our own country, a fact which has always saddened me. My personal matter has been to take our cultural richness, along with our high quality and original materials, and combine them with traditional methods practised for thousands of years and gives better results even than today’s technology to create a new brand.

A UNIVERSAL MATTER
The need to express ourselves and to attribute meaning to objects is an integral part of our existence. It is for this reason that the first humans drew paintings on cave walls. It is for this reason that Anatolian Kilims have used the same symbols for the past four thousand years. It is for this reason that all natives and tribes, from the Aborigines to the Vikings, that every civilization has its own unique symbols. Irrespective of geography, race or language, symbols represent mankind’s need to express itself. The forms have changed, but not our needs; perhaps this is a reminder of how similar to each other we really are...

A MATTER OF SUSTAINABILITY
We consume. Without a break, without thinking, even while we are breathing, we are always consuming. We consume believing that everything has been created for us. Do you believe that we can at least start consuming without destroying? We are trying to keep alive traditional fabrics and objects, and the traditional methods from our ancestors, along with crafts and the craftsmanship. Yes, the days are now much shorter, and time moves much faster. But this has also increased the value of owning something special. So what do you say, instead of just going with the flow, why not try changing the times?
