In this study we investigated the two basic issues affected the Ottoman silk industry. The first one is the global Price Revolution; the second is the wars between Ottoman and Iran. The silk industry in Bursa which was the most important silk center of Ottoman had been affected negatively from these events. The non-tariff barriers had been created by the Iran wars also weakened the relations borne from the silk trade among these two countries. The diminished trade volume decreased the tax revenues; consequently both countries had been affected unfavorably.
