The Ottoman Empire once was a vast region that encompassed much of Eastern Europe, Northern Africa, and Southeastern Asia. It was founded in the middle of the thirteenteenth century on the Black Sea coast in the city of Söğüp in the region of Turkey, in the Black Sea resort of Marmaris. The area was inhabited by Christians and Muslims but was long before dominated by the Ottomans. It became an important trading center and an international financial center as trade routes were established all through the region. As a result of this, it became a favored location for traders and later became a favorite destination for European travelers. It is believed that the Ottomans had an impact on the design of the first Ottoman sari. These are the type of shoes that have laces laced up the front and a drawstring around the ankle region. They are dark in color with square or rectangular legs made of felt and leather. The new sultan, Abdulhamit II, changed the design when he introduced a new style that incorporated the use of satin over leather. After the fall of the Turkish Empire, there were many changes to the ottoman. Many pieces were either banned or displaced from the scene altogether as the peoples who inhabited the region came under different cultural influences. However, there are still many traditional saris available in the Middle East today. They are made out of silk with intricately decorated foot and leg covers. The best thing about these old saris is that many still bear the beautiful embellishments that were common on old Ottoman tents. The most popular ones, like those made in Istanbul, have gold and silver thread work and embroidery that still hold the Turkish touch. If you want to buy a piece of history for your home or office, an ottoman is a perfect choice. Not only will it add a touch of class to your room, but it will also help preserve the past. During the time of the sultan, his city was accustomed to such luxuries and there are many stories about how the new sultan took pleasure in having them around. Ottoman sari are not hard to find, but if you have not seen an Ottoman during your travels in Turkey, I suggest you do just that. The rise of the middle ages brought more European influence to the region. This was especially true in Western Europe, where Catholic churches became the new sisoulias for many people. The Catholic Church gave prominence to the Latin cross that became the symbol of Turkish and Greek culture after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. The Catholic cross has become a way to identify people belonging to the same religion. Many people do not consider themselves religious, but they still associate the Turkish sultan with the Latin cross. In many homes the family jewels are adorned with crowns and saris that resemble the intricate designs of the Turkish sultanate. The fall of the Roman Empire left the region under the Turkish Empire. As the Turkish soldiers swept through the area, they took everything that they could carry including women's clothing. They wore this clothing because it was comfortable, but also because the women were forced to as part of the slave trade. Turkish soldiers married women from the conquered region and the offspring that resulted were often brought up as slaves. Over a 600 year period, the Turkish tribes took over the territory stretching from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea, taking everything they could as they went.
