KUTNU PROMOTION GROUP
The Kutnu Fabric Promotion Group, established in the Metropolitan Municipality of Gaziantep, is working to expand the usage areas known as "palace cloth" because it has been used in the kaftans of the sultans, who have woven loop by loop for centuries in the city.
The recent fashion show at the Zeugma Mosaic Museum organized by the Kutnu Promotion Group, headed by Jülide Konukoğlu and presided by Dilek Hanif, who adopted the fabric to the contemporary fashion has been highly appreciated.
Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Cavusoglu, Gaziantep Governor Ali Yerlikaya and Metropolitan Mayor Fatma Şahin followed the defile.
PS: Kutnu is a woven textile with a shiny surface and colorful vertical stripes, made with silk warps (lengthwise yarns) and cotton wefts (crosswise yarns).
