Istanbul is truly one of the most exciting cities in the world for shopping because it offers a mix of up-and-coming brands, international luxury labels and authentic artisan crafts. Whether you seek rare antique textiles, hand-stitched Anatolian carpets, trendy fur vests, suede jackets or leather boots or museum-quality jewelry, it can be found here and the browsing and buying is likely to involve passing through colorful neighborhoods and meeting passionate tradesmen. And in Istanbul, as in other capitals with lots of local craftsmen like Hong Kong, Shanghai and Marrakech, it is quite possible to have custom products made while you are in town.
