    If the warp thread is cotton, the weft thread is hemp, it contributes to the surface formation. Feretiko Rize Cloth It called. What are impacted teeth? When one or more teeth fails to grow in the correct position and is therefore held below the normal gum line, it is called an impaction. This can be complete, such as completely unerrupted (buried) third molars (wisdom teeth) or partial when just part of the tooth is visible in the mouth. Why are impactions important? For best function and appearance the teeth should grow in a healthy alignment. When one or more teeth is impacted, this can affect the function of that tooth but also the function and appearance of other teeth. Whether all impactions should be treated is still controversial and your dentist and oral and maxillofacial team can explain the advantages and disadvantages or treatment for you, which is usually surgical. This fabric is a type of weaving made by hand and using local materials from start to finish.

    Weaving, which has a deep-rooted history in the tradition of Turkish handicrafts, is trying to survive today, has been and continues to be a source of livelihood in most regions. In addition to preserving traditional features, it is of great importance in terms of keeping this rooted local handicraft alive and developing with new product designs.

    Although the history of the Rize cloth is not known exactly, we can say that the first documents related to the cloth are the edicts issued by Fatih Sultan Mehmet on this subject after the conquest of Trabzon (1461). Later on, we come across the fatwas published by Suleiman the Magnificent, again in 1482, when Evliya Çelebi mentioned that heaps of fabric were gone from the Rize region during his visit to the region (after the conquest of Trabzon).





    We can understand that the product has a special place in the Ottoman palace from the fact that Rize cloth is often found in the clothes worn by the sultans. So much so that it is possible to come across Rize cloth in the clothes of Suleiman the Magnificent, Sultan Abdulhamit and Sultan Abdulaziz. For example, in the palace records, it is recorded that the underwear that Sultan Abdulaziz was wearing when he died was made of Rize cloth. In addition, there are palace records that some of the shirts of Sultan Abdulhamit Han are also made of Rize cloth. Having such an important place in the Ottoman palace, the Rize cloth actually proved itself to the world and received an award in a competition held in Paris in 1856. Here is the history of such a famous cloth, some researchers, 8th century BC. However, no definite conclusion has yet been reached. Although the techniques in some weaving products are similar to Iranian and Central Asian weaving techniques, a definite connection has not been established between them.

    The product we call Rize cloth is a product whose warp thread is 100% cotton and its weft is made from the fiber of the hemp (hemp) plant belonging to the Rize region, and is produced entirely on hand looms. It is woven in the plain technique.

    Its feature is entirely due to the unique thermal properties of the hemp plant grown in the region. Because hemp plant is one of the leading thermal fiber types in the world. Because hemp yarn is not only a hydrophilic (water-loving) yarn like cotton, but also a type of yarn that removes water and thus provides constant coolness. While weaving made of this yarn does not feel overwhelming in the heat as it provides a cool touch, it also provides protection against diseases due to the fact that it evaporates water or sweat quickly. Because the area was very humid and there was a lot of sweating, especially small children were dressed in feretiko shirts until a certain age.

    Feretiko is generally used in underwear, shirts, bandages, handkerchiefs, indirect (a kind of apron that women wrap around their waists), napkins and shalwar, various decorative covers, bed linens (potted, plain).
