A corn seller. Grilled and boiled corn is a popular summertime snack for locals and tourists.
Baklava and Kaymak. Kaymak is a delicious Buffalo Milk cream. It is eaten with bread and honey, or as a creamy complement to Baklava!
My favorite part of traveling to Turkey (besides sourcing beautiful textiles) is the food! Mezes and mixed kabob are some of my staples while in Istanbul.
This cobbler is an expert at sewing trim onto the shoes. Here he is, sewing on our signature brown trim to the kilim uppers.
