What to Buy

The textile industry in Bergama is quite developed and it is especially famous for its rugs. Sheets, thin cotton cloth suitable for shirts, woollen bags, prayer rugs, and other carpets are woven here. The ceramic plate shops along the Bergama Creek are worth paying a visit. This industry, which for years has been passed on from father to son, is still a family business but bigger companies have also become involved in this important commerce.
