A Matter of Fortune in Religions
The Hand of Fatima, also known as Hamsa, draws its roots from the Arabic word Hamse, which means five. In Islam, it is the hand of the prophet Mohamed’s daughter Fatima; in Judaism it is the hand of Miriam, sister of the prophet Moses; for Levantine Christians it is the hand of the Virgin Mary; and for Hindus it is known as the Hand of Humsa. It is used to keep the devil at bay, and is also a symbol of bounty, fertility, patience and loyalty.
It is a Matter of… Let’s start with the expression: No matter what your problem is, as long as the end result is good, it’s worth the wait. And end with our analysis that peace is everyone’s common wish. The key is to open your eyes and your heart to this world.
This is the perfect gift for when you want to protect those close to you from evil, or when close ones are going through difficult times and you want to express the feeling: “The end result of patience is salvation.” This is also a good gift option for someone you know who has started a new business, when you want to wish them success and prosperity. When you think of a “new business gift, housewarming gift, motivational gift, get well gift, wedding gift, birth gift, anniversary 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?
