This is a remarkable shop with a hugely positive backstory. Jennifer's encouragement of traditional weaving in an area close to the Syrian border (there are now apparently 1000 active looms) has brought much-needed income to the area. The towels, robes etc are of excellent quality...More

Every time I dry off from a shower, I am reminded that Jennifer's Hamam is rare in Istanbul. It's not rare because they sell Turkish textiles - everywhere sells that. It's not rare because of the store's location - there's a ton of textile shops...More

What I love about the store is, first the quality of the merchandise is probably the best in Istanbul. The owner is very conscious about helping maintain traditions in the outlying villages. Weaving will soon be a lost art. She makes it a point to...More
