Nazar, Evil Eye Talisman
The evil eye talisman can be found everywhere in North Cyprus. Locals, as well as Turks, believe that it keeps them safe from the malicious looks or talks. You can find nazar in any form: beads, bracelets, and even kitchenware.
North Cyprus reed seated chairs
Most of North Cyprus craft shops sell miniature chairs with woven seats, which symbolize the tradition of reed weaving. Reed seated chairs are still in demand among locals.
