33-35 Keseciler Sokak
Istanbul , Turkey

Just west of the Grand Bazaar’s central chamber (ic bedestan), this literal hole-in-the-wall shop specializes in silk, mohair, cotton, wool, and fur products like towels, bathrobes, caftans, kerchiefs, duvets, and rugs — all sourced from handcrafters in villages throughout the country. Bath products are another favorite item and include copper bowls, wooden clogs, skin scrubbers, and scented olive oil soaps, often embossed with ancient Roman, Greek, and Ottoman motifs. With premium products, however, come premium prices. Fans include former first lady, Laura Bush.
