Sultanahmet Antiques & Collectibles

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

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.
