Armaggan - A Mecca of Traditional Turkish Designs

I left the house with intentions of going to the covered bazaar one morning but after noticing the store Armaggan on Nuruosmaniye Boulevard, I didn't get that far.  It's hard to imagine a six story store filled with one of a kind hand made objects, fabric and clothing that are all produced according to traditional techniques, but this is what exactly what Armaggan is. More than a store, it is like an art gallery.  I especially loved the floor where they have the natural dyed cloths and ottoman inspired clothing. It is very close to the Grand Bazaar, making it a convenient stop for a day of exotic shopping.
