Isparta December 2013 4978.jpg

A young woman churning (shaking up cream or whole milk to make butter), using a wooden plunger-type butter churn, named ‘yayık’. She is standing in front of a small Yörük tent.

She wears a festive two parts-costume made of striped silk, with baggy trousers (‘şalvar’) and a blouse named ‘sarka’. The front of the blouse, the shoulder pieces and the cuffs of both its long sleeves are adorned with gold thread embroidery, fastened in the so-called ‘kordon tutturma tekniği’ (= applied cord). Which means that the gold thread is laid down on the fabric in circular figures, and then fastened with a yellow silk thread.
This kind of dress is related to the ‘Bahriye’ (‘Navy’) costume, which appeared in the early 1930s and that is still in use in the Eskişehir region.
