We began to search with two kind of questions In our heads.
What the Tourists want to shop from İstanbul ?
How can we make them to feel %100
satisfied at the end of their shopping day ?
Let us to explain What the tourists buy mostly in İstanbul and how we can make your shopping in the best way ?
As we know the geopolitical location of Istanbul is unique . Since it is located in between two continents , it was always a trade and bussiness center in the past and is today. All the products that came from far east by the Silk Road had to pass through this centeral city before they arrived to european countries.
Vikings , Venetians , Greeks, Jews, Romans and of-course the Turks and many other nations run many bussiness here. Today the city is one of the most crowded cities in Europe and we have tons of thousands of shopping center. Some of them are very old bazaars, and some of them are very modern shopping malls. Since our government recently built the new istanbul airport, and by the developed transportation system it is very easy to come to istanbul Just for a lunch or to make shopping.
For instance, the old bazaars are such as; Grand bazaar, Egyptian market etc. new shopping malls are such as; forum istanbul, Tepe Nautilus, or Cevahir shopping malls or Kanyon shopping center. These are just few of the well known shopping malls.
But there are some very old local stores still standing against to these big malls , with the quality of their products and the suitable prices for every budget , and of-course handmade craftsmanship.

Hello dear guest,
Every year millions of tourists visit İstanbul. , Every visiter has different reasons for coming to this metropolitan city. Some of them are here just for holiday , some of them are for bussiness or just a short stop while they are going to the other countries. But we have some visiters who come just for Turkish Carpets and rugs too.
But why Turkish carpets are valuable ?
Well it requests a very long answer but let me answer you in a short way …
My answer is very simple The oldest , the best , and unique and very durable carpets in the world are made by Turkish ladies .it represents interior design of Turkish home and the stories of their life . They are all hand made , and take long time to weave them. Carpets especially from Anatolia Comes to Istanbul and meets with their new owners here . in Istanbul there are some very well organized local Carpet stores , which are mostly unknown by the tourist but the locals.

Hello dear Guest ,

İznik is a town which is 2 hours away by a car. The region’s traditional tile history dates back to prehistoric times. But the art form blossomed by the Ottomans. In the late 15th century, craftsmen of Iznik mixed the clay used in ceramics with quartz. The innovative technique created an alive white base that made the four traditional colors found in Iznik pieces of turquoise, , malachite, coral–stand and cobalt out underneath a thick transparent glaze.
Tile , in turkish “ ÇİNİ “ ( Chini )
Seljuks used chini tiles in architecture as decorative elements in many buildings; this art was accepted by the Ottoman rulers as well. Ottoman empire developed the Style of the chini tiles and used to decorate the Palaces, Mosques , houses , fountains , kitchens etc. The designs were created in the “nakkaş hane” the art centre.
