My husband and I and a friend were on a dream trip to Istanbul in August and luckily we decided to shop at the Arastar Bazaar. We were told about Jennifer's store because we had mentioned organic products and how much we loved them. This led to a private visit to Jennifer's warehouse where we spent the next hour or... More

On our recent trip to Istanbul I wanted to go back to the Arasta Bazaar for some quality shopping and its a lot quieter. I walked into a towel shop, at this stage I didn't know anything about the quality or the story behind these towels. The young guy behind the counter was so nice and helpful and explained the...

I was in Istanbul last week and went to Jennifer's Haman in the Arasta Bazaar by the Blue Mosque because it is recommended in Rick Steve's book. I had already purchased some cotton towels in Kas but I was looking for a duvet cover and to compare my previous purchases with what she had. She does not carry duvet covers... More

My friends and I were lucky enough to stumble upon Jennifer's store, and then to spend time with her in her warehouse. It was one of our most memorable and enjoyable times in Turkey. We would have loved to have taken a sample of everything home to New Zealand. The quality of her products is exquisite across the range, her... More

Recently visited Istanbul and found Jennifer's in the Bazaar behind the Blue Mosque. Searched it out after reading so many positive comments about the quality of her towels. Jennifer and her staff are wonderful to deal with. No pressure, friendly and professional. Her towels are incredible and reasonably priced considering the workmanship. They are all handwoven and truly works of... More

I usually go to Grand Bazaar when i need to buy towels, peştemals, scarves, pillow cases etc..Since i discovered Jeniffers' Hamam in Arasta Bazaar, i'd rather visit her place to buy hamam equipment. I think this place deserves an appreciation for gathering/organizing high standart products made by local craftsmen/artisans. It's a shop where you can find some examples of turkish... More

Several shopping websites recommended this store. I visited Istanbul last week and I had to visit. It's located in the Arasta Bazaar. We met Jennifer and she explained her products and what made them unique. The quality is amazing. I bought a small blanket, a robe, washcloths, a towel, and scrubs used for hamam baths. My friend bought several scrubs... More

someday I hope to go in person to Jennifer's Hamam but for now I am content to have 2 incredibly beautifully made towels delivered to me - I read about Jennifer's work in the paper and wanted to support her role in supporting local tradespeople who are losing their livelihood to products made elsewhere the towels, throws, etc are made...

I had read quite a bit about Jennifer's store and the work she has done to preserve the heritage of weaving in Turkey. It was very easy to identify her store on the market street due to the wonderful Canadian flag in the window. Jennifer was not in Istanbul when I made my visit, but she had two lovely representatives... More

On a recent visit to Istanbul we had been recommended a visit to Jennifer's Hamam. We had been warned Istanbul is full of products made in China. It was wonderful to see Jennifer's treasure trove of fabulous traditionally made towels, robes, scarves, loofahs etc. Jennifer spent a great deal of time with us going over how everything is made. There... More
