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.
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...More

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.
