Anatolian kilim - Bodrum

Anatolian kilim

Turkish market (bazaar)

Once a week there is a street market in Turgutreis and there you can really buy all kinds of things if you're willing to go through the crowd and bargon with the people selling.

What to buy: Well, if you decide going to the street market, a good idea would be to buy something turkish! That could be something of turkish art, like kilim. Killim is a type of a carpet or a rug, usually hand made. The Kilim is a truly remarkable tradition maintained by women of Anatolia for hundreds of generations, dating back nine thousand years. Turkish mothers and daughters maintained this mysterious tradition for the last thousand years as Turkish tribes settled in Anatolia and intermingled with the local population.

What to pay: Depends on what you're bying!
