If you are looking for high quality linens I highly recommend Jennifer's Hamam. We are from the States but currently living in Istanbul. I have purchased pestemals (towels traditionally used in a hamam), bath towels, and scarves at many locations throughout the city and none of them have lasted like the items purchased at Jennifer's. All of the items are soft, sturdy and retain their colors after use and washing. We love our towels so much that we have returned and purchased bedding as well. In addition to the high quality of the items, the items are made in Turkey with organic Turkish materials by family weavers. The staff is helpful, patient and does not pressure you into making a purchase. Jennifer's Haman actually has 2 storefronts in the Arasta Bazaar (the Arasta Bazaar runs alongside the Blue Mosque). Look for the Canadian flag hanging above the door.
