Local women in Burdur contribute 1 million euros ($1.10 million) to the national economy annually with their handmade door ornament exports abroad.
The ornaments, made in the form of garlands, use materials collected from the forests of the southern province. The provincial General Directorate of Forestry is working to bring all kinds of plants with commercial value into the national economy, according to Anadolu Agency (AA).
The production, sales procedures and principles of products, other than wood raw materials, are determined within the framework of the General Directorate of Forestry’s “Communique on Inventory and Planning of Non-Wood Forest Products and Principles of Production and Sales."
People living in rural areas are informed about the areas of use and protection of plant materials through forest regional directorates and support is provided for the collection of these products in line with the areas of need.
In the Bucak district of Burdur, where biological diversity comes to the fore, small garland-shaped door ornaments are made from plants collected with the permission of the General Directorate of Forestry. All of the ornaments are exported to European countries.
