"Carpets, Kilims and good friends: Baktiroglu" grand bazaar Tip by dutchboycalledjan
grand bazaar, Istanbul: 66 reviews and 107 photos
This was a nice, small shop in the Big Bazaar. We entered it by good luck with a specific wish and Mustafa succeeded were other shops failed to deliver the requested embroidered cloth. When you're looking for a well-tempered salesman who is friendly, let you take you time, has good (not too strong) tea and wants you to be happy - his motto is: 'as long as we have our good health': this is the place. When we were there, two of his previous customers came back, just for tea and a chat.
What to buy: We bought a hand embroidered (silk on cotton) cloth, square (most are rectangular, to be used on beds) of very good quality.
What to pay: There are cheaper one, but this cloth was well worth its about 300 euro's.
Address: Zenniciler street No 30-32, Grand Bazaar
Directions: Near the centre of the Grand Bazaar.
