TRT Documentary gives renewed vitality to some professions in Muğla, professions that are on the edge of extinction. The documentary takes up many handicrafts from silk weaving to copperware production, from honey hunting, to hand-made sandals. The city of Muğla within whose boundaries lay the world famous resorts of Marmaris, Fethiye, Datça, and Bodrum, is relatively under-rated in terms of its richesse in handicraft and hand-made goods. The "Manmade" documentary will bring to screens Yeşilyurt Silk Weaving Facilities which have been used in the world famous film Troy, and the art of sandal-making which used to be a source of income for many families in the past and which now has only one active practitioner.
