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

I visited Jennifer's Hamam in October last year and was amazed at the quality and value for money of the products in her store. Jennifer was very helpful talking to us about how the towels were made and how to care for cotton products. We brought a large array if towels and throws- all of which Jennifer organised to be...

As a Canadian woman visiting Istanbul, a trip to Jennifer's Hamam shop in the Arasta Bazaar was high on my list of things to do. Once in the shop I became interested in a bedspread and was invited to visit the showroom, which is a short walk away, where they had more stock. What a treat! I had the pleasure... More

My husband and I were recently on holidays in Istanbul. In preparation for shopping in the Arasta Bazaar (local to our hotel) I had read reviews which highlighted Jennifer’s passion and preservation of old-style Turkish workmanship and utility of organic and certified materials in textiles. With a passion for quality, I knew I could not leave Turkey without browsing these... More

The great thing about travel is finding something unique, beautiful, and indigenous to where you are. Jennifer's Hamam is all three. Her shop in the Arrasta Bazaar (make sure it is the one with the Canadian flag in the window) and the showroom (truly) a three minute walk away is a required stop on any trip to Instanbul. The craftsmanship... More

These towels are that amazing! Truly hand woven with organic cottons but individual weavers, not factories. If you don't see what you want in one of the shops in the Arasta Bazaar ask to go to the new show room which is about a 10 minute walk. Be sure to look for the Canadian flag in the window. Jennifer's Hamam... More

The amazing service and incredible array of weaves, colours and products all make for a worthwhile visit to Jennifer's Hamam. While browsing and trying to restrain yourself from purchasing more towels than you need Jennifer explains how they are eco-friendly created. My towels are one year old and still feel and look incredible. The tea towels and beach towels have... More

We've had our towels for a few years now and we are glad we bought them. Expensive, but the best. They remain as eye catching as when new and seem to always attract compliments. Ignore the date visited below - it is just the oldest allowed
