Wood beads wrapped in silk ikat fabric end with a silk tie. The necklace is hand- crafted by village women of Sagalassos, in southwestern Turkey. The region is one of Turkey’s best preserved archaeological sites. Anatolian Artisans organized the first “Sagasun Arts” workshop, named to honor both the site and the village, was held in October 2018 and involved a group of 20 local women. Experienced international craft designers trained them to develop products reflecting the site and area culture.
