Turkey is abundant with beautiful handicrafts including the famous Turkish Carpets, Kilims, leather, pottery, linen & jewellery. The excitement and traditional rituals of bartering and buying these within the bazaars will be one you won't forget. Rather than being overwhelmed with this, it will feel a breeze once you know where to go.
Moving away from these more traditional market places, the major towns and especially Istanbul have wonderful chic boutiques selling up and coming Turkish design ware. Wandering the numerous shopping areas you will be sure to find those ideal gifts for loved ones at home, not forgetting some well earned gifts for yourself.
