Back to the City | Return to the City: Çukurcuma

Back to the City | Şehre Dönüş: Çukurcuma

Çukurcuma Street, the route where our office and store are located, and Istanbul's time machine!

We like to research where street names come from. The name of Çukurcuma comes from the fact that Fatih Sultan Mehmed performed the first Friday prayer in this hollow region after the conquest of Istanbul.

It is very pleasant to take the pulse of the day with the shopkeepers, wink at the Museum of Innocence, look at the Galata Tower while going down the slope, and walk with the soap smell of the Hamamhane!

The North Fox was designed for such days. walking around the city,
discovering historical architecture, meeting with friends around a delicious table
It has been designed to come and join the past and the present in city life.

The buildings have been transformed, the shops full of antiques have been replaced by more modern design shops and workshops. It was like a synthesis of the old and the new, but still, life on this street is calm, trade seems to be enjoyed, and when you enter the area, you feel as if you are away from worldly affairs.
