We created these stunning pieces with fine silk threads using an ancient embroidery technique that dates back thousands of years! We are delighted to present you with a fresh look at a traditional Anatolian handcraft the Oya.
Oya literally “embroidery”, encompasses a large range of jewelry and accessories. These traditional handcrafted items, made from silk, date back possibly as far as 4000 years. These beautifully unique fashion accessories stand the test of time regardless of current fashion trends.
