Turkey---in between

Since I grew up in eastern culture, here studying at RISD is a really good opportunity to know about western way of culture. As a country I am interested in Turky because I am reflecting myself in its mixed culture. Because of its geographic location between two continents, they have a unique blend of Eastern and Western tradition, especially such as the Ottoman Empire and the Islamic world along with Europe. We can see their mixed influence in architecture, dress ornaments, and other everyday crafts objects.

The shoes, laces, head ornaments are quite interesting to me.
