“Excellent quality and service”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

My wife & I were planning to purchase leather jackets whilst in Istanbul for 4 days, and after reading many good reviews on TA about Prens, decided not to look any further. Had a liitle trouble finding it but once found instantly satisfied. A friendly welcome, an offer of cold refreshments by the charming salespeople, Tariq and Dilek set the tone for a pleasurable experience without pressure. These people know customer service and deliver it in spades. Whilst we are not expert in leather clothing we were certainly satisfied, one item being a leather jacket off the rack as well as a suede one made in 2 days. There was a little compromise on the price for 2 garments as we were told that they normally charge extra for custom made. Certainly we could have bought cheaper but both the quality of soft leather and good workmanship sealed the deal.

“Very pleasant shopping experience”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We both enjoyed the experience with Harun who really knew what he was talking about and we had a few laughs along the way. My wife is delighted with the jacket she chose as the quality is excellent plus a feel good factor that you would never get from the bazaar next door. Only minus point is the negotiation on price but that is up to you. Great experience thanks to Harun

“one of the most impotrtanti shop in Istanbul”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We have been in Istanbul 6 year and we had the occasion to visit several leather shops around the City.
So we are in a position to say without any doubts that PRENS Leather Shop is a place where you could touch the professionalism of design, fashion and quality.
The personnel too is very polite and make you feel at ease in every circumstance.

“Prens is the best!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Pren's Leather was incredible! Harun helped me from the moment I arrived and made shopping a breeze. We tried on three excellent leather coats and I finally settled on one. Harun was professional and completely knowledgable about the product. It was pleasure to work with him. The rest of the staff was great and a great break from the Grand Bazaar hustle. I completely recommend Prens!
