More Leather than Fur
When you go shopping here, you’ll find some fur, but more leather apparel: coats, jackets, vests, skirts, dresses, accessories.
The shops are patronized mostly by Istanbul people, but also by visitors, who travel to Turkey for the reasonable prices.
Remember: on the Muslim holy-day of Kurban Bayramı (“Sacrifice Holiday”) over a million sheep are offered to God in imitation of Abraham’s sacrifice of a sheep instead of his son Isaac.
You can make an awful lot of leather apparel out of a million sheepskins…
