Be inspired by our Halal-Friendly Cities guide

Istanbul is at the fore for Muslim clothing

Istanbul is a secular city that supports halal tourism with historic landmarks, an emerging food scene and a thriving fashion industry. On our retail watchlist are lifestyle brand Les Benjamins for men’s and women’s street style, as well as ANIM and Mehtap Elaidi, which produce items that can be styled in a modest manner. Look to AnatolianCraft, which uses local craftsmanship to create luxurious slides that are useful for clients in hot climates and those observing five daily prayers.

Jewel-like shoes and accessories

Each AnatolianCraft product is a unique wearable art masterpiece, handmade and hand-embroidered by the talented artisans we collaborate with.
