Follow the walls down from the main gate of Topkapı, and you'll find this small shop on the right. Their workshop is in Antakya, but they sell their whole varied range of woven silk products at this store. These include raw and boiled silk, as well as silk/cotton and silk/linen blends. Prices are reasonable.

Store hidden in a calm street. Nice products, but mine turned out to be broken when I unpacked. Check carefully before they wrap the goods!

This shop is a little bit difficult to find but once you locate the street it stands out because it isn't surrounded by a lot of other shops.

This understated shop only 100m off the beaten track to Tokapi (turn right at the main gate) is well worth the visit. It is as different again to the hustle and bustle of the bazaars, it has authentic, really good quality goods, the staff are knowledgable and helpful. We spent a lot of money in there on a range of... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
