With the belief that women need to take their places in production in order to stand on their own feet; in 2019 she thought of adding crochet, and knitting to every collection in order to make use of women’s endeavors and include them in the economy. With this idea she started the “Handicraft Project”. By using the lacet and the crochet done by our women living in villages of İzmir, Tire in her collections; she aspired after helping our women feel the happiness that comes from being a part of production, even if it might be considered a small part. Bengi Söney continues to meet fashion-lovers under Modalogy’s roof with her Handicraft Project and new collections that she continues with every season.
