Why Sunflowers...

First of all, I am a flower junky... I get my inspiration from Mother Nature. She is my guide, mentor, teacher and healer.  

Sunflowers have always been sacred for me; they represent our beautiful soul. In Turkish they’re called “Aycicegi” which means moon flower and which in English is the sun. The moon and the sun representing feminine and masculine energy in one, like within each of us. They remind me of our higher self – our soul – free from the constraints of gender, an expression of pure love. 

That is why I love to call everyone "Beautiful Sunflowers", and that’s how I got inspired to create these sunflowers, sun and moon embroideries on our Sunflower Tribe Yazma headscarves.
