Nakkashe – Turkish Oya Crochet #EtsyShopReview

Nakkashe – Turkish Oya Crochet

I love discovering new types of artistic mediums. Perhaps this is why I can get lost for hours on end on Etsy, surfing through all you crafty men and women who are making such amazing pieces of art. Plus, I love that you can find people sharing their crafts from all around the world. From painted wine glasses to knitted hats, the level of new forms of artistry is impressive!

So, when I was introduced to the Etsy shop Nakkashe, I was impressed with the level of “crocheting” that is happening in every piece listed. I use the term crocheting in quotes because this technique is not like the crocheted blankets my grandmother would knit. No. This is technique is called Turkish Oya Crochet. It is a stitch knot technique that uses a much finer thread and a tiny sewing needle. The result is beautifully intricate designed necklaces and scarves.

Nakkashe pieces have a ‘boho’ flair to them, which I appreciate. Most of the scarves are silk with the Turkish Oya crocheted details on the end. The necklaces are much more detailed with some beautiful designs. One that I liked is the Red and Black Crocheted Leaf Chocker that you see above. It’s definitely a one-of-a-kind statement necklace.

Shop owner, Anakiz, uses the inspirations and colors of her childhood in Turkey to inspire these beautiful creations. She fancies herself a talkative and energetic woman who is committed to reinventing the crafts of her ancestors. 

There is clearly a lot of heart, culture and care given to each of the pieces listed in the Nakkashe Etsy shop. They are perfect gifts for an inspiring woman in your life. With Mother’s Day coming up, I can see a couple pieces that I’d like to have and maybe a few for my own mom.

With the level of care and craftsmanship that goes into each piece, the prices are very reasonable. Gifts start as low as $15 and go as high as $60. So, if you need a new and unique idea for Mother’s Day or a Birthday, check out the Etsy shop Nakkashe.

Until Next Time,
