Sultanahmet Crafts

Proprietor Şeref Özen has one of the best collections in Istanbul of antique and vintage tribal carpets, flatweaves, and textiles—primarily Central Asian rugs, tie-dyed ikats, and embroidered suzanis, though there are also some Turkish and Persian pieces—at his main shop not far from the Arasta Bazaar. An adjacent shop (at No. 15) sells a specially designed collection of colorful pieces made mainly from felt, including hats, slippers, pillowcases, and decorative items—perfect for anyone looking to pick up a unique souvenir or gift.
