Having its roots from the pagan culture, locals of Harran believe in the spiritual cleansing power of harmala seeds that grow in the region. Inspired by the handmade ornaments of stringed harmala seeds, the "Harmala Separator" is a contemporary interpretation of this cult object on a spatial scale. The product is designed in a way that can be produced by any local woman without seeking a special skill or ability. This creates an opportunity for all locals to take active role in the production process even from their houses. Handmade felt balls, referencing harmala seeds, are placed on a string, creating a cozy and practical textile.
