About Us


Since 1991, The Guide Istanbul magazine has been on a hunt for the city’s best kept secrets: unique crafts, precious objects of desire, and modern design that perfectly blends in elements of local tradition. Shoptheguide.com is a result of this exploration -- Turkey’s savoir faire, reflected in the objects displayed on the pages of our publications, is now available in one place. Since this selection has been curated by the master storytellers at The Guide Istanbul, each and every piece in our shop comes with its own story, too. Whether you’re a first-time holidaymaker, or an experienced discoverer in search of inspiration, explore shoptheguide.com to create your own Istanbul tale.
