Kumbaracı Yokuşu No. 63/B, Galata

This appealing shop stocks gorgeous handmade leather bags, purses and wallets, serviceable but delicately stitched, in yellow suedes or light tans, of light leathers from Beyazıt. For the hardcore leather enthusiasts, there are also book covers and tobacco pouches in a variety of colours and shapes.

All the wares are hung on exposed brick walls, decorated with branches. On most days, the owners will be working on new pieces allowing visitors to get an insight into their craft.
