#106 of 249 in Shopping in Istanbul
Ark of Crafts is your online destination to discover the magnificent art and crafts from the culturally rich Anatolian region (Turkey), home to many civilizations for thousands of years. We are representing the selective works of highly regarded artists and craftsmen with the motivation to open them to new markets. We are traveling all around Anatolia to connect the artisans preserving the ancient crafts, the talented young artists blending traditional and contemporary, and works of women NGO's.

Ark of Crafts, binlerce yıldır birçok medeniyetin evi olmuş Anadolu topraklarının zengin tarihi ve kültüründen ortaya çıkan görkemli sanatlarını bugüne, çağdaş bir kurguyla taşıyan sanatçıların özgün eserlerini bir araya getiren bir oluşumdur.
