  • Naile is pleasant and energetic person. :D I made a shore and my husband made a small ebru painting. Such a great experience!!
  • Stumbled across this shop on our way to Uchisar castle. What a great find! Naile showed us her Ebru art and my children did a piece for themselves which turns out great. Highly recommended activity especially for the younger ones.
  • I was fortunate enough to meet Naile at the bus station asking her for directions to Uchisar. Serendipitous- we were headed the same directions! On the bus, she told me of her family, career and passions. Her vivacity for the Ebru art captivated me so much I took a detour to visit her gallery. And am I happy I did. There I looked at her paintings; some of which had immaculate detail, elaborate composition and elegant intricacies. She explained Ebru is a 600+ year old Turkish art form where dyes are placed in a water mix that include cow enzymes and then delicately transposed to a medium (paper, papyrus, silk, marble, etc). Then she demonstrated the process. It's an interesting art form that combines creativity and chemistry. Just watching a master work on the medium is hypnotic. I also met her husband who was a delight, offering tea and showing me pictures of their family and world record! Yes, Naile holds a world record. As I left, Naile called me back and gave me the painting she drew for me. Personally signed - AMAZING. Naile and her husband is one of the most memorable couples I've met while traveling - they are good people. Tesekkur Ederim Naile for sharing your passion with me. Viet P.S. Ask them what their secret to 30+ years of marriage. The answers are humorous and apt.
  • A wonderful kind of Ottoman art...
  • Ms. Naile is an intangible cultural heritage bearer and a state artist. His works are worth seeing and he strives to keep old Turkish arts alive. Those who love the art of marbling should surely go to those who wonder how it is made.
