Handicrafts have emerged in the beginning to meet the daily needs and motivation of people to exist and protect against nature. However, especially with the transition to the settled life handicrafts have gained another function for the need of adornment and decoration. Parallel to the development of handicrafts, they also started to have a communicative function. Motifs, embroideries, and colors used in handicrafts have become symbols that express emotions. Before the invention of writing, people describe nature events, forms of belief, feelings, and thoughts by symbolizing and painting them.
Nowadays, because the developing technology and mass production took place the traditional production techniques, handicrafts have begun to produce decorative objects that emphasize visual aesthetics in the name of our continuing relationship with the past and nature rather than with necessity and functionality. Handicrafts are transitioning from craft to art. Handcrafted products are evolving from everyday tools to artworks.
We, as Xumaru, in the light of this understanding, aim to deliver you unique pieces made by real artists. In this way, we manage to support traditional handicrafts and as well as taking on a mission in the name of bringing the legacy of the past to the future.
XUMARU is an ancient Turkish word which means heritage or legacy. It is no longer used in modern Turkish. However, it is inherited from our ancestors and we are proud of using it as a symbol of our vision.
We believe that nature is a legacy which belongs to our children. We are only the guardians, obligated to deliver this XUMARU to its real owners. We intend to achieve this goal by reflecting nature into wall arts and making them a constant part of our lives.
Although many might suggest the contrary, we like to mix pleasure and business.
Our business is to provide the best products and services for our customers to make sure that they are satisfied with their shopping experience. In addition to their joy and satisfaction with shopping, we would also like to make wall arts an essential and a beautiful part of their homes.
Our pleasure is to create artistic products, emerging from nature. Wood is one of the excellent materials since it is as natural as nature. It is a product of a living, a symbol of life and endurance. Thus, even after it is uprooted, it is still alive as a way of art and the artist’s thoughts and passion.
We work alongside gifted artists and craftsman who share same values with us. Who values, respects and understand the nature and creates works of art through it...
