About DecArt

 

DecArt by Agis was created as a startup business with the aim of appealing to a wider audience. Handmade creations inspired by the traditional knitwear and fabrics of homemade handicraft, resulting in an entirely new level of both interior and exterior design. Utilizing techniques for instance knitting and recycling antiques such as embroidery, tapestry, and motifs, DecArt features modern elements that harmoniously embrace “those that recall memories bonded together with newly created ones”.

Cushions, and knitted sofas, rugs and mats, knitted baskets and caspeaux, knitted banners – modern knitted wall memo and a range of small items such as lucky charms and decorative ornaments – all handmade from scratch – DecArt designs implements more stylish atmosphere both in the living space or the workplace.

Hugs

The unique “Hugs” sofa, floor and pouf cushions, derive from the traditional knitted patterns which appeared in the beginning of the previous century in Turkey as a “knitted motif” as “kem göz Sağlıklı” (Istanbul Museum) and Arabian markets.

Giving a modern decorative perspective, the traditional pattern alternates materials, knit pattern, dimensions and sizes and becomes an integrated part of modern times while the selection of colors relate directly to the desired protection against the evil eye.

All the above can be knitted in the nine-color expressive palette or they can be created according to the customer’s needs in two dimensions (60cm-80cm in length) and sofa-pouf (1.80 cm in length/100cm width/ 80cm height).

Lucky Charms “Evil Eye”

Among DecArt’s unique creations are lucky charms – knitted in a range of dimensions and colors as home souvenirs while in some occasions they have been utilized as baptism favors or seasonal gifts. They are created in a dual backward knit and they can obtain a volume of 8-15cm. 

Archaeological finds with vases decorated with painted eyes or representations of ships showing eyes painted on their bow testify that the “eye” protected against misfortune in a popular philosophy that is widespread in antiquity throughout the Middle East (from India As Turkey) and the Mediterranean sea (Balkans, Italy, Spain and North Africa).
