Feshane

Feshane

The Feshane was founded in 1839 on the order of Sultan Aldulmecid. It was thought that with this factory the demand for fez and felt cloth could be met. This first industrial foundation of the country in real terms was one of the very first steel structures built in the world; the columns were imported from Belgium and installed here. The Feshane was renewed in 1866 as one the most advanced textile factories of its time with textile machines imported from abroad. The fabrics woven in the Feshane won counless gold medals in the 1855 Paris Exhibition, the 1863 Istanbul axhibition Sergi-i Umum – i Osmani and the 1893 Chicago International Exhibition. The Feshane was closed in 1839 and reopened as Sümerbank Defterdar Factory. The Factory was emptied in 1986 due to environmental improvements that were happening in the Golden Horn. It was then renovated, remaining faithful to the original design of a weaving hall measuring eight thousand aquare meters.
