THE MILLENARY OYA TECHNIQUE
For the first time, from Verbena Madrid we cross borders in search of artisan skills. One more step in our work as hunters of small jewels around the world. In this new collection, we recover the ancient art of Oya, a traditional crochet whose origin is in Turkey. Mine, is one of the most common Turkish female names. And it is the name we have used to baptize the collection in honor of all these unique women.
Since its birth centuries ago, the women in charge of carrying out this technique transmit their love, hopes, expectations and happiness through the flowers that they themselves embroider to the millimeter. Even today, brides continue to carry different flowers on their wedding day to declare their feelings through the decoration of their dress or headdress.
This process, passed down from mothers to daughters, has been recovered on this occasion to create a series of earrings, crowns and bags designed to share the most special moments.
A natural and calm environment hosts the photo session between mother and daughter in which the purity of the relationship and the individual character of the protagonists are transmitted.
Based on traditional plant motifs, the collection is inspired by real flowers. Among them, they can be found from tulips to carnations, through curdled clusters of lilacs.
All the pieces have been worked by expert artisans in this complicated technique, which requires hours of patient work with a needle and fine silk thread in different colors with which the delicate result is achieved.
