Suleyman’s Garden


SKU: suleyman's-garden Category: Tags: , , ,


I visited the mosque built for Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent, and admired the filigree that graced the bottom of the interior dome.  It inspired me to replicate the concept in textile.
A band of lace and beadwork lays just above a padded fabric cuff, ornamented with leaves and berries — a nod to Gulhane Park that surrounds the Sultan’s Palace (The Topkapi) in Istanbul.
This hat is fully lined, with a variety of choices for leaves on the cuff.  The lace is new but most of my materials are gleaned from second hand sources.
