This study is formed on the basis of the field investigation related to weaving culture of an ethnic community, the so called Pomak, living today in Anatolian and Balkans (particularly Bulgaria). Between the years 2007-2009, three-year field and area study was conducted by visiting Turk’s and Bulgarian’s settelement areas, for determining the handicraft and fabric samples being disappeared during the times when Turks were forced to the bulgarization.
In the lower part of this study, the swatches of Pomaks who come from Bulgaria and live today in Anatolia, more precisely in the village of Şahinkaya (Pomak village) of the district Sındırgı, are examined; the established examples are classified among themselves and ten pieces of apron (peşkir) are studied in the terms of weaving technique, design and composition characteristics.
