Established in 1993, the Iznik Foundation aims to revive the traditional art of Iznik, an early ceramic-ware technique. This has led the foundation to employ archaeologists and experts who excavate the sites of original Iznik kilns of the 15th and 16th Centuries. The foundation also tries to promote the ancient art by offering courses and research options to young students. Tourists can take a guided tour through the site of the old factory and ceramic workshops and even have the option of purchasing items at the showroom.
