Journey Into The Mystical World Of The Grand Bazaar

The global edition of Stones of the Grand Bazaar, the new and long- in-coming book of Fatoş Altınbaş, academic and creative director of the luxury jewellery brand Mevaris, was published by the world-famous Rizzoli Publications. The book took its well- deserved place on the best-sellers list of Rizzoli and Armani Bookstore, located within one of Milan’s highlights Galleria. The book tells the story of cultural and artistic riches kept alive by the Grand Bazaar since 1460 and passed down from one generation to the next, the transformation of jewellery making, and of the Altınbaş family, one of the first families in Turkey to create a jewellery brand. It came out on the global market as one of the best references for Turkey itself and the art of jewellery making, which can be regarded among Turkey’s traditional arts. Fatoş Altınbaş interviewed 25 masters for this book, which is how she shows respect for the master jewellers in the 500-year-old tradition of the Grand Bazaar.

She says she aims to shine a spotlight back on the precious world of the Grand Bazaar through their stories, and to teach them to the new generation.
