The Kardelens Fiber Arts Group is a talented group of Turkish artisan immigrants living in the Pittsburgh area. The Turkish word “kardelens” is the name of a flower that symbolizes resilience. Their work features embroidered jewelry, greeting cards, and pouches, marbled art fans and more. According to group coordinator Serap: “Through our art projects we became aware that we can have a place in the community and we gained our self-confidence again, like we had in our country. We hope to support other newcomers as we have been supported by the Pittsburgh community.”
