Contents / Ottoman Purses

Purses were an object both functional and beautiful in Ottoman culture, made of satin, lace or silk, and sometimes tasselled…

Man, an element of nature, alive, dynamic and who from the dawn of history has been living in an active environment, has ingeniously invented thousands of ways to make and embellish clothing and other functional objects, by drawing, painting, carving, weaving, embroidering or knitting. Their designs have reflected what people saw, heard, and felt, and they have attached all kinds of emotional and artistic meanings to their lives. The tiny purses of the Ottoman period that are our topic here are also a product of this creative activity.
