I leave for Istanbul in 2 1/2 weeks and very, very excited. Thank you to all the regular contributors for all your advice and tips. It is much appreciated.
I want to purchase a kilim and want something that incorporates traditional designs. Are there specific motifs associated? I have looked online to get a general idea, but I don't want something created for the tourists.
Similarly, any thoughts on Iznik tiles? I figured I would look at Topkapi and figure out what seems common.
