The Knit-Art project
implemented by McMed Management Centre and Ayten Huseyin brought together 40
women from 3 different villages in the northern part of Cyprus under the
umbrella of a newly created knitting cooperative called Sisters.
I heard of that event and went the other day to meet Ayten in her shop in
the Bandabuliya Nicosia where she also keeps some of the art works done by the
cooperative. I bought two necklaces and a matching bracelet, really delicately
done. Also the other things are expertly done like hand made handbags, socks,
bed shoes and many more knit art. These are the things that should be shown in
the Bandabuliyas, handmade art by local women. The cooperative ‘The Sisters’
were given a knitting machine to do some more work for sale.
