Istanbul Door Tote - Ege

Istanbul Door Tote - Ege


One of Istanbul's Ottoman names was Der-i Saadet, the Door to Happiness.

This tote represents the abstracted Deco of the door to the Ege, or Aegean, Apartment Building, in Cihangir.

These cotton gabardine totes celebrate some favorite early 20th century Istanbul doors from the central Beyoğlu district. In a time of great change and growth, doors to new, modern apartment buildings were also doors to a new century, a new Republic, a new social and political scene. They also exhibited some great design.

Hand-screened in Istanbul. Totes come with tags with the door's story, in Turkish and English.
