On Wednesday it was time for my boyfriend to go home - but not without another little round of shopping.
Time for more #IstanbulByInstagram!
I had found the producers of special printed pestemal and wanted to buy some from them. They are in Cihangir, not too far from our hotel. We had passed there before but it had been closed.
Olivier, who is normally quite geographically challenged, found the shop again easily in its little backstreet.
Actually it's more an office (they are visual designers) with a little room where they store the towels. You can find them under @bravoistanbul on Instagram.
Many of these little speciality shops and producers sell their goods at design markets that pop up here and there.
These are the ones I got, one with a bellydancer and one with a big letter Ş.
It's right beside the airport shuttle bus station. This is where I had to say goodbye to Olivier and send him off to his trip home.
