We visited the usual suspects in the Grand and Arastar Bazaars and they sell decent products (mostly). We then stumbled on Lalay just 50m off the T1 tram route near Sultanahmet station. These are significantly better quality products and, bizarrely, at similar prices. Take a look, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

After reading all these reviews about Lalay, I was really looking forward of going into the shop and buying some gifts for my friends. But upon coming to the shop, I was very much disappointed by terrible service and lack of knowledge from the sales people….I didn't buy anything and left the shop within 5 minutes.... I wouldn't recommend this... More

The beautiful culture of Turkey with its ancient and modern attention to elegance and comfort finds expression in Lalay Dunyasi. The fusion of luxury, elegance and hospitality is virtually an art form in the gracious hospitality of Turkish people who have a splendid gift for living with grace. These qualities take a particular domestic form in the home, the garden,... More

I have been to Istanbul many times and this shop has what your looking for when it comes to service and quality of merchandise. They have the best prices on Turkish towels and other items for the bath.
