Set across two continents Istanbul straddles both Europe and Asia. It is a city that stimulates all your senses. In Istanbul you will find the ancient and modern interwoven. It is a dreamy place and the inspiration behind this pocket square. The grand bazaars of Istanbul are a mirage of intense colour, intricate pattern, opulent textures, melodic sounds, and deep aromas. In homage to the atmosphere of the bazaar and traditional Turkish tea, which is crimson in colour, this design has an intense red base. The floral motifs are inspired by the tranquil Yildiz park, the perfect place to have a picnic with the one you love. Traditional Turkish ceramics have influenced the border design where a painterly style speaks of makers hands, a subtle reference to the many artisans at work in the city.
