The motto at Armaggan is “Unique by Design”, which says it all. The luxurious department store in Nuruosmaniye, one of two found in Istanbul, showcases pieces that you’re unlikely to find in many other places. The emphasis here is on traditional Anatolian artistry and craftsmanship, alongside contemporary designs. Local materials are used, and regional artists showcased.
Housed within Armaggan’s luxurious walls, the store offers up a sweeping range of pieces to buy, although “collect” might be more akin to the experience of shopping here, such is the art-gallery-quality of the pieces on offer. There are objet d’art, jewellery, leather goods, naturally dyed textiles and home goods to peruse and perhaps take home. Some pieces are handmade, others limited edition. But all are tempting.
For even more Armaggan, there brand offers another sumptuous store in Istanbul, as well as an art gallery and a boutique hotel. After all, once you’ve experience life the Armaggan way, it’s understandable to want more.
