Syrian Women's Workshop for Self-Reliance

As Support to Life, we always explore all the possibilities and try to find new ways to support life. This time we developed a new creative and cooperative way to support life and women’s empowerment and lead the way for those who want to become supporters.

We created an alternative that transforms shopping experience into a chance to support a more fair and equal world with a shopping point that contributes to more than one Sustainable Development Goals by producing and consuming responsibly and inviting others to do so. We formed a social design market servicing to this fin.

We completed our works on brand creation and marketing and now we are proud to say that we are officially open to become, find and aid supporters. We created ‘Destekar’ - which means ‘supporter’ in Turkish - brand whose activities overlap with Support to Life serving the same goals, worrying about the same problems.

We created a series of collections and one of our first collections is inspired by Göbeklitepe. With the Göbeklitepe Home Textile Collection we tried to maintain Göbeklitepe’s inclusive spirit that shows us working, worshipping and creating together is one of the best ways to support life.

To produce responsibly we started from the design process. We gathered a team of designers who work with natural materials to imitate the nature of the world and who pursue what is precious in art and in daily life. In our designs, we departed from the Göbeklitepe’s guardian shapes and patterns. During the production process, we worked with a team consisting of 10 women who live in Sanlurfa feeling the spirit of Göbeklitepe. We enjoyed working and producing together while empowering women and girls by including them in all parts of the production in their unique ways. In this way, we created pillowcases and lace pillows to enjoy at home together in peace and table mats to eat together remembering inclusiveness and unity.

By doing so we opened a new path to support life and women’s empowerment and to become supporters by simply shopping from our brand.
