The DOBAG Cooperative in Ayvacik

Ivan Soenderholm 1 August 2005

Click to enlargeThe DOBAG Cooperative, S.S. Süleymanköy Tarimsal Kalkinma Kooperatifi, has showroom and administration just outside Ayvacik on the road to Canakkale  - in the north-western part of Turkey. And very close to Assos, the ancient Aeolian city above the tourist resort and beautiful fishing village of Behramkale.

I visited the cooperative's showroom in July 2005 and had an interesting conversation with the accountant Digdem Geral. She told me about the DOBAG project and showed examples of recent production.

At this moment weavers from 31 villages and 3 towns, Ezine, Ayvacik and Bayramic, have joined the cooperative. All wool were natural dyed and the wool spun with winter wool. Prices were calculated by the numbers of knots in the carpet. All rugs were marked with a village symbol and a weaver mark.

More information about the DOBAG project on world wide web.
