Objects of Affection: Shirt
Inspiration: Objects are powerful. They produce culture. They create or transform our behaviors. We explore our history through them. They help us understand who we were, who we are, and who we may become. They stimulate our feelings. They bring out memories. They make us happy, unhappy, confident, insecure, safe, comfortable. Creating an object is a journey. It is a learning. It is an experience which transforms us. We appreciate objects. An object is a design and we appreciate design. In the collection “Objects of Affection” we explore and present some of the objects we hold dear to ourselves for their design and stories.
Description: “Objects of Affection: Shirt” is an illustration of a vintage handmade shirt by our honorary founder and mother Hamide. She made this for herself, we are guessing when she was in her twenties based on some photographs and family history. She passed it on to Şeyda when she was in her early twenties.
