Niyazi Koleoglu

Basket maker Niyazi Koleoglu was born in Altınkaya, a village near Hatay in 1935. He learned basket making from his wife and more than fifty years they are  practicing their craft. They collect wheat stalks during the harvest, clean and dye them. After the wheat stalks dried they damp them and make bags, plates, baskets and wall decors with colourful motifs. Niyazi Koleoglu is attending to many fairs around the world with the support of Turkish Ministry of Culture. He wishes that basket making will continue after they passed away.
