The evil eye characterised by white and yellow circles surrounded by blue is the most widely sold souvenir. Called Nazar Boncuk in Turkish, some Turks have them in their homes, offices, and cars, but this tradition seems to be dying out with the younger generations.
Said to ward off evil eyes jealous of your good fortune, it is a superstitious tale but with a cultural twist, hence its time-honoured use. If you want to take one home, get ready for a mass of choice because sellers’ stock them as keyrings, jewellery, plates, bookmarks, towels, hanging ornaments and much more.
We also carry some of our products on Amazon (Tea Coaster).
