"..for centuries,everydaylife was adorned with these brightly coloured,richly-designed fabrics, the product of the most delicate skill of hand. YAZMA are produced by painting designs by brush on cotton metarial streched on an embroidery frame, or by tracing the design on to the metarial through holes in a wooden stencil. As headscarfs,worn by both Muslim and Christian women in the country districts of the multi-national Ottoman Empire, as well as by city women of the lower income groups, The YAZMA was an indispensable part of the traditional female custome ...the art of printing cloth, which developed along with the art of weaving, is one of the world's oldest handicrafts..."
