ART IN BULDAN
Turkish Union initiated the “Art is in Buldan” project on October 11-13, 2019.
The aim of the project was determined as supporting the production of hand weaving looms of the region, famous for its weaving. Considering the importance of health care, emphasis on the use of cotton, silk and linen fabrics made from organic fibers in clothing was encouraged.
