Since 1980, the Sadberk Hanım Museum has been collecting the best examples of Ottoman period embroideries, creating a collection of exceptional diversity and breadth. Curated by Hülya Bilgi and İdil Zanbak, the “Skill of the Hand Delight of the Eye” exhibition, accompanied by a lavishly illustrated exhibition catalogue, includes 167 textiles of different types worked in a wide range of needlework techniques that illustrate the richness and diversity of the embroideries that were such an essential part of Ottoman life. Through these selected pieces, visitors to the exhibition will gain insight into the story of Ottoman embroideries over a period of over 300 years, between the 17th and early 20th centuries.
