  • As a disclaimer, I do receive any kind of kick back or compensation for this review. This is my go to towel place. As a foreigner its always nice to have your "go to's." A spice guy, a towel guy, a rug guy. I can happily say, and hopefully my guests and family and friends can say the same, that I have all three. Luckily again for me, they are my spice lady, my rug lady, and now my towel lady. Where to start with Jennifer's hamam. I have been here by myself and with guests about a dozen times now. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and passionate. Jennifer herself never seems to leave the store and is proud and friendly. It is always a good sign when the owner of the store is by your side to help guide you through the buying process. Jennifer's can get packed, so be sure to ask where there showroom is, located 3 blocks away, and they will walk you there. The English level by most employees is high here, so that is a comfort as well. Now to the good stuff. The towels, blankets and scarves. My aunt, who is a impulsive shopper, came to visit a couple of months ago. She insisted that she has enough towels, but like family, I insisted we go anyway so she could have the "experience." I put this in quotes because a day of shopping at Jennifer's is like going through a textile tour of Turkey, in one sitting., Needless to say my aunt went crazy, buying full sets of towels to immediately replace the ones she has. From an array of different designs, thickness and prices, Jennifer's offers fully organic hand woven products. Their linen is to die for (look for their towels, robes, and blankets on the third floor!) Having a tailor on site, makes it easy to offer custom made robes, at a decent price! Did I mention that they ship worldwide? They ship worldwide. To be frank, I adore this place. The people, the product, everything about it. I can't say enough about the quality of their product, and I continue to bring or tell anyone I know to go and to experience it for themselves! if there was a 6 star option, I would click it. Help me out here Google!
  • Beautiful woven cotton and linen. No pressure knowledgeable sales staff. Flat pricing. Awesome packing.
  • Amazing customer service, traditional cotton weaving, vibrant colours... After a year of continuous use, my towels are softer than ever and look better than ever! Fantastic experience, a must when in Istanbul, and you can get custom orders by simply sending them an email! Bravo!!
  • Just bought another 4 bath towels, 6 hand towels, and a small pestemel. The experience just keeps getting better! Now to find out if they do mail order!!!
  • If you are a fiber fanatic as I am then a visit to Jennifer's Hamam in the Arasta Bazaar will send you to paradise. Walls and walls of luscious texture and colour greet the eye and entice the hand to touch luxurious organic towels, robes and pestamels, all hand woven by skilled craftsmen. In a city bursting with shops selling pottery, carpets and textiles, this is the real thing - authentic craft ,beautifully presented , to treasure always.
