Cappadocia Shopping Trips

Cappadocia is a popular tourist destination, as it has many areas with unique geological, historic, and cultural features.

 

We higly recommend our guests to visit the vacational weaving school which employs hundreds of women in entire region and one of the oldest pottery families in Avanos. In both places, visitors are wellcomed & informed about these dying local arts without obligation of purchasing anything. In case, they like to get an item(with the certificate of origin) they can enjoy the benefits of government subsidies such as door-to-door free shipping and V.A.T reduction from the ''actual price'' written on the label. 

Cappadocia Rug Weaving Art

Carpet and rug weaving have  been a traditional occupation and  cultural product for centuries in  Cappadocia. No one  knows exactly when the  technique of carpet weaving first  appeared; however, the oldest surviving carpet in the world is  from the 5th century B.C and made in  the Turkish style of a double knot. At the weaving corp. you will see how the Cappadocian women have been giving life to loops, unravelling silk cocoons, spinning and dyeing the wool using natural plants for generations.

Cappadocia Pottery Art 

Just north of the Göreme National Park is Avanos, a town and district that is noted for its Turkish craft skills. To say that Avanos has a long history for pottery making is no exaggeration as the Avanos pottery art dates right back to the time of the Hittites in the Bronze Age. The town is located along the Kizilirmak (Red River) and the red silt of the Kizilirmak River is the source of the red clay that goes into pottery making. After the master potter, our guests are wellcomed on the traditional kick-wheel in order to turn the clay into their freestyle master piece.

We frequently receive that question from our guests;

'' Where can we get the best deal for jewelry and fine leather in Turkey?''

If you have time, we highly recommend you browsing Istanbul for purchasing jewellery and leather as most of the jewellery and lether staff are being distrubuted all over the country from there. If you do not have time, we would recommend the factories for the best deal in Cappadocia.

Book a cab to Kayseri (ASR) Airport or Cappadocia Nevsehir (NAV) Airport, take a ride around Cappadocia, or hire a premium cab for a birthday or anniversary. Stop calling multiple taxi operators. Book a cab from our website and we will ensure that you get a safe, reliable and comfortable taxi ride in Cappadocia for sure!
