Ankara, Turkey, July 29 (UPI) — Getting clothing dyed by a Greek company may not be the easiest thing in the world, but it is an option for many people.
Greek clothing company Woad dyed its clothing for about a month in Turkey to bring attention to the issue of genocide, Turkish news agency Anadolu reported.
The company says that since the start of the genocide in 1915, more than 10 million people have been killed in the Balkans, mostly by Ottoman forces and Nazi forces.
Woad says it has received a lot of support from the Greek public.
“We’re happy to be able to help in this project, as it will help to raise awareness on this genocide and also will contribute to strengthening the unity of the Greek people,” Woad CEO Giorgos Zavas says in a statement.
The Greek company will have to be approved by the government in order to begin the process.
