Ipek Han

This is the section of the covered market which was dedicated to silk in the past (ipek means silk). Here they were selling the finished goods, as opposed to the Koza Han which is where the silk cocoons were traded. Today the Koza Han is more known as the silk market.

I brought a few yards of silk home from this market, and gave it to my mother. Neither of us has made anything from it, but it's nice to remember where it came from.

That's a nice story. These days mostly clothing is sold in this section.
