The area
Neighborhood: Fener & Balat
This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community, the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid sights, historic attractions, stunning vistas, and warm Turkish welcome, the area remains largely unperturbed by the tourist trade that characterizes the atmosphere in nearby Sultanahmet and around the Grand Bazaar. Travelers that like to explore off the beaten track will reap big rewards for making the effort to visit this low-key part of town.

A Real Store for Real People
Aug 2019
This is one of those authentic stores in the Grand Bazaar where you can actually buy some high quality towels, without pressure, and for a fair price. I was recommended to visit here by several disinterested locals. The robes are awesome also!

The best place for towels
Apr 2019 • Solo
I've been shopping at Dervis for the past ten years. The store is small but everything in it is high quality and well curated. Many more unique styles compared to what you'll find elsewhere. The gentleman who owns it is super nice, very friendly, and very informed about every type of towel and textile. The prices are also incredible for the quality. This is worth seeking out to find it in the bazaar. I always buy more than I planned because I know I will enjoy these quality towels for a long time.

Recommended by our food tour guide as he buys towels here too. Products are marked with prices so everything is up front. The store is small though so selection seems limited. Also there is second hand cigarette smoke throughout the Grand Bazaar.

Definitely one of the few real, authentic, Turkish shops in the Grand Bazaar. Can't wait to my next visit.

Quality fabrics, knowledgeable owner
Oct 2017 • Couples
We came across Dervish’s shop by chance and ended up buying 4 beautiful pieces of hand woven fabrics. The quality of the work is fantastic and Dervish was very good explaining the techniques and processes used to make them. He then showed us many beautiful antique pieces, giving a really nice insight into the history of Turkish textiles and crafts. I really recommend a visit to this lovely small shop - just make sure you allow enough time to root around the fantastic choice of fabrics.

Ordered peshmetals online. Service was friendly and professional by Nagehan. The goods were delivered safe and sound by Fedex within days (Turkey to Australia) and were lovely.

Glorious Soap!
Feb 2016 • Business
A friend's husband went to Istanbul and visited the Grand Bazaar. We asked him to bring home soap from Dervis which I had researched when I knew he was going on the trip. He came home with the most wonderful olive oil soap. It was literally like his wife and I had never experienced soap before and believe me we are shoppers! So....we ordered more from the wonderful folks at Dervis. They gave us choices we didn't know we had and shipped it out immediately. Could not have been easier! Both the soap and the staff are wonderful. I thank them! Delightful in every sense!

Wonderful stock & wonderful staff
Jan 2016 • Couples
Super bath and bathroom goods shop - having visited a traditional old hammam we consulted Time Out guide - which brought us here as we were keen to buy the scrubbing mits, the amazing soap bag etc - and we did ....but also so much more - damask patterned towels, scarves and 8 * soap from Alleppo Syria - now unfortunately no longer produced. Created a large bundle of what we wanted and were very pleased with their suggested price. Run by two friendly brothers - with confident English spoken - Going home very happy.
