Kas was everything we had been dreaming of when we decided to board a plane south, rent a car, and follow the coast. Finally, we found the Turkey that you see in all the pictures and advertisements. Kas has a delightful charm about it and the tourist were at a minimum. We were also blessed with several great little boutique shops, or at least that is what Casey and I thought, not sure if Jevan and Beau felt the same way.
The small narrow stone streets were filled with stores selling jewelery, ceramics, rugs, and textiles. The ones that kept drawing Casey and I in were the Turkish bath towel shops. One of our favorites was A La Turka on Uzun Carsi Cad, No. 1. They sell hand woven Turkish bath towels, bedding, and tablecloths in all different sizes and quality levels. I think we might have been a little intoxicated by how organized the products were in the store. All the colors, pattern, sizes and types lined up and stacked… that always gets me.
Just catty-corner to A La Turka, is another great shop called Galeri Mozaik. Galeri Mozaik has a great collection of embroidered pillow covers and spreads. They have embroideries from Central Turkey in Silk and wool as well as from Uzbekistan (a personal favorite of mine).
Kas is a wonderful place to visit. Please let us know if you go…I want more towels!
