In the depths of Sinuna, a town located in Shangal, Turko Resho and her husband Ali Ailyaz work hard to preserve the rich culture of their people, the Yazidis. Their mission is to preserve and pass on to the next generation the traditions and heritage embodied in traditional Yazidi dress.

Turko Resho shared her thoughts on the significance of this endeavour: "We sew traditional Yazidi clothes to preserve Yazidi culture. I only wear our traditional clothes. I sew Yazidi clothes of all traditional styles to promote our culture in our community, especially among the youth. Our children should preserve their culture.... I want to expand my business and sell clothes even cheaper so that everyone can afford them".

Supporting this idea, Turko Rešo not only puts her heart and soul into making traditional clothing, but also advocates for Yazidi identity. She notes: "Our culture is our identity and we must preserve it, just like our language and traditional clothing."

In spite of the daily routine of caring for her family, Turko Reşo finds time to pursue what for her is not only a craft but also a mission to preserve her cultural heritage. Ali Aylaz, Turko Reşo's husband, actively supports his wife in this endeavour and is himself involved in the creation of traditional clothing.

Turko Resho and Ali Ailyaz are examples of dedication and commitment to preserving the cultural heritage of their people through craftsmanship and devotion to tradition. Their work not only perpetuates the beauty and richness of Yazidi culture, but also inspires many others to preserve and value their cultural heritage.
