Diamond and Silver Embroidery

Diamond and Silver Embroidery

Another local handicraft is diamond embriodery.It has several sub-branches such as calibre work, enamel and polish work. In the Ottoman Period, the Small Market was the centre of dimaond embriodery. In Kütahya silver has been mined and treated for a very long time.For that reason, silver embriodery is a handicraft that has developed over time.

The skill that produced the Kütahya çini that decorate mosques,churces,mansions,fountains and palaces all over the world,became a style in its own right with a particular palette, perspective and design which we also find in the arts on canvas. Thus Kütahya is a city rich in artists. Some that come immediately to mind are Ahmet Yakupoğlu, a miniaturist,painter and flute player who graduated from the Feyhaman Duran Workshop; and painters, Hüseyin Yüce, Abdullah Taktak amongst others.
