A Universal Matter of Luck
Found in every age and culture, the horseshoe is one of the most common superstitious symbols. The roots of this belief date back to old times when the “U” shape was believed to hold in abundance, the holiness of iron, and to Ancient Rome, where the crescent shape symbolized the goddess of fertility. According to a Christian legend, an ironsmith chained the devil through trickery and released him only on the condition that he would not enter homes with a horse shoe on the front door. Horse shoes are hung upside down on doorways in order to keep the good fortune in a home.
It is a Matter of… Perhaps our ancestors would hang up old and unusable horse shoes on the doors in order to recycle them, and hope that they would bring good luck. Looking at today’s increasingly rare use of horses and horse shoes, it seems likely that the chance of a horse shoe bringing good luck has increased. Or, you could just use the modern-day equivalent, old car tires, to replace the horse shoe.
This is the perfect gift for when you don't want your good fortune to slip away, or when you want to say “Good luck!” to your friend who has bought a new house or started a new business, for this is a gift that says “May your happiness be everlasting.” When you think of a “housewarming gift, new business gift, wedding gift, good luck gift, good fortune 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?
