TALISMANIC SHIRTS

Explore the myths of Talisman

We were inspired by the legendary Ottoman Empire’s Sultans’ talismanic shirts when designing the concept of Romance Istanbul Hotel. Each room has its own unique charming story based on the talismanic shirt which handcrafted and inspired by its original. The replicas of talismanic shirts exhibited in our rooms are from 16th Century Collection of Sultan’s Clothing at Topkapi Palace. Below you will see the Sultans’ Talismanic Shirts in Romance Istanbul Hotel’s room. When you click to the each shirt, you will be reading the story and the love poems of that Sultan.

Talisman was a sort of magic mostly known in Eastern Civilizations. Over time wearing talismanic shirts became a tradition in Ottoman Empire, especially amongst sultans and important statesmen. There were a certain belief in talismanic shirts that; they were the cure, the bearer of victories, the protector for the evil, resource of wealth, peace and bliss for the owner’s family.

To complete the talismanic stories and tell our guests the charming legends of fascinating city Istanbul, we decorated each corridor of our hotel with hand-crafted ceramic miniatures of both talismanic and famous buildings of the city which you can see below picture in the middle of the page.

In Romance Istanbul Hotel, we would like to invite you to this wondering adventure with the Talismanic Shirts that has a great importance in Ottoman Sultan's life. Each talismanic shirt’s story will bring you back to the magical world of the past while you “explore the myths of talisman”.
