Mavi, my favorite Turkish clothing brand, is one of the biggest Turkish textile brands. They’re also one of the biggest Turkish clothing brands in Istanbul. Mavi has stores in western Asia, eastern Europe, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and even the USA. Good quality, reasonable prices, and a wide product range put Mavi on the top of our list. Started as Mavi Jeans, Mavi today has stores in 37 different countries and offers a wide range of products. I always buy my jeans from Mavi. Their other products are also good quality, but their best products are still jeans in my opinion. They also offer online shopping, you can check their products on their online store.

If you’re looking for high-quality clothes for reasonable prices, Sarar might be your brand. Sarar, although high quality and stylish, is not that expensive.

Turkish clothing brands in Istanbul also offer leather. When it comes to leather goods, Derimod is one of the first brands that comes to the minds of most Turkish people. Currently sitting at 87 retail stores, Derimod isn’t as widespread as Mavi or LCW. However, if you come across a Derimod, their collections are worth checking out. Turkey is one of the world’s biggest textile producers, and leather has a special place in its textile industry. You might not know this, but many leather brands in Italy outsource their production to Turkey. So you might be thinking you’re buying Italian leather when you’re really buying Turkish leather. Turkish leather is that good. And when it comes to Turkish leather, Derimod is amongst the most popular brands. High-quality materials and great design put Derimod on our list with its collection. Check out Derimod from their online store.

Bonus: Les Benjamins

Turkish clothing brands in istanbul

In their own words: “Les Benjamins represents a vision of the contemporary East”. Or, “An Istanbul-Based Lifestyle Brand for Men and Women”. Les Benjamins sells more than clothing: they sell lifestyle products. Les Benjamins is an exceptional local brand with a vision of expressing where they “want to see the East today”. After gaining popularity with fashion weeks in Istanbul and Milan, Les Benjamin became one of the fastest-growing brands in Istanbul. If you follow fashion trends, Les Benjamins might be for you.

Bonus 2: Turkish Home Textiles

Turkey is one of the largest producers in the global textile industry. And you cannot have a textile industry without home textile. Even though this post is mainly about Turkish clothes brands, I wanted to mention home textiles too. Some of the good quality Turkish companies that do home textiles are:

1. Madame Coco: Even though the name sounds French, this is actually a Turkish brand. One of the leading brands in home textiles in Turkey, Madame Coco stands out with very reasonable prices. With hundreds of retail stores around Turkey and Istanbul, Madame Coco offers many different options.

2. Karaca Home: My personal favorite. With unique designs, high quality, and reasonable prices, Karaca deserves the best place in my heart. They may not be the market leader when it comes to home textiles but have high quality and unique good quality.

3. English Home: Another foreign-sounding sounding brand that is Turkish! This is a common marketing trick. Many Turkish people like the sound of and prefer foreign brands. Thus some Turkish companies deliberately choose English or European-sounding brand names. English Home stands out with good quality, a wide product range, and reasonable prices.

To sum up, Turkey is a leading textile country and has a lot to offer. Check out local Turkish clothing brands and home textiles when visiting Istanbul. You’d be pleasantly surprised with the price/quality performance. Check out more on our article about “11 Best Shopping Malls in Istanbul 2024 (Updated)”.
