Overview

YAKTO IPEK DOKUMA is named after Yakto village in Antioch (Antakya) in Turkey that has been engaged in the art of silkworm breeding and silk weaving since late 1800s. We, BUYUKASIK Family members, have been maintaining and performing this handicraft in Yakto. Since early 2007, Mehmet BUYUKASIK has been selling handwoven silk products while demonstrating the production. In addition to silk products, you can also find other products such as traditional Anatolian patterns, cotton peshtemals, bed cover and sheets laboriously woven in Yakto. We would be delighted to have you visit our wholesale and retail sales shop on Galata Yuksek Kaldirim Street when you are in Istanbul.

Everything sold in this Galata shop is high-quality, handwoven by artisans in Southern Turkey. The blankets, towels and other textiles were not only reasonably priced (for the quality you get), but WAY softer and clearly of a better quality than ones we had found earlier...More

We stumbled on this store by accident -- and ended up stopping by several times over the course of our visit. The owners are lovely (accommodating & not pushy at all) & the hand-woven textiles were the best we found in Istanbul. According to the...More
