A Matter of Fertility in Frig

The Frig Empire ruled all of Anatolia in 750BC. During King Midas’ rule, they developed their unique culture which had an influence on many other civilizations. Often called Cybele, the cult of the Mother Goddess can be found throughout the Mediterranean region and Asia. She has great power over nature, and symbolizes maternity, fertility, femininity, the life cycle and bounty.

It is a Matter of… Women carry the ability to create life within them, as proven by both physiology and science. Essentially, a woman’s power is hidden within her. The modern world should learn this lesson: Men are strong on the outside, while women’s strength can be found from within.

Gifting Reasons

With this symbol representing femininity and its inseparable fertility, this is the perfect gift for your mother, your wife, or anybody you know who has recently given birth, in order to say “Good luck!” and to wish the baby a long and healthy life. When you think of a “woman's gift, birthday gift, get well soon gift, mother's gift, anniversary gift, birthday gift” this is the first thing that comes to mind.

Actually, there are many high-quality products made in our country…
Actually, there are so many crafts we have forgotten about…
Actually, maybe the newest does not mean the best…
Actually, even if people may seem very different, they have very similar needs…
Actually, everybody feels the need to express themselves somehow…

And so this is why we have Mesele!

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.

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...

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?
